    Hello,

    I live in Alabama and am looking to find information on the fastest germinating weed or plant that will grow in the area. I cant seem to find any information on the internet. Everytime I google the word "weed" I get some interesting results, none of which are the ones I am trying to find. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Germination is usually more dependent on seed type than on location.

    Cress germinates in two days.

    Two points that may help supplement free radical's pertinent comment:

    1. 'Weed' is not a technical term - you might have better luck looking up 'grasses' or even 'annuals'.

    2 Are you sure that your main query is about germination? Bamboos have the fastest-growing plants known (albeit some 'seaweeds', not necessarily strictly speaking plants at all, can exceed their growth rate). Is it germination only you seek, or growth rate in general?
