The primary succession initiates with no soil or a soil bed. A community invades the barren soil-less area region initially. Later, as they establish and grow, their growth alters the surroundings and the environmental conditions.

Due to these changes in the environment, the new plant species that couldn’t survive in the original conditions were now able to survive here. Eventually, the old plants were replaced by the new plant species. This process of primary succession may take a few hundred or even a few thousands of years...
