Use of the word "Seedling"

The SIlent Seed

I have been curious about how people use the word "seedling" for a while now. I've seen people say that their "seedling" is about to flower. When I think of the word, I think of a... well... seedling - a small, young plant, recently sprouted, not a mature plant. 
Could somebody explain to me the logistics of how the word is used, and why it might be used to describe a flowering size plant? 
Thanks, Jude
