Why has my plant stopped growing?
Too little nutrients can stunt growth, too much much nutrition can damage the roots and prevent the seedling from taking in water. Low temperatures. Most seeds like a soil temperature of around 65°-75°. Excessive moisture and overwatering.

What are the types of plant growth?
Areas within a plant that are capable of growth via mitosis are called meristems. Plants undergo two types of growth, primary and/or secondary growth. In primary growth, plant stems and roots elongate by cell enlargement as opposed to new cell production.
Where do plants grow?
