    Primary succession. This is when plants start to grow from places where there has never been plants growing there before. Secondary succession is when plants start to grow because something happened and killed the previous plants, but there was plants there before. Understand ? So, primary succession is the answer because this was the first batch of plants that have ever grown because the islands were just made.
