We only need to know what a seed needs to germinate and what the resulting plant needs to grow, and only the very basics of this are really necessary. But we only need to know these things because we desire success and are trying to manipulate things towards that success. The seed will germinate and the plant will grow when the environmental conditions are correct. Neither the seed nor the plant knows, cares, or needs us to know anything about the processes. They will do what they are supposed to do when the time is right. Sometimes they feed the wildlife and insects, sometimes they shrivel up and decompose returning their nutrients for others use, and sometimes they fulfill our desires.
