    Hi folks

    Since there is often talk about pollinating plants and terms are used that some may not be familiar with, I created this diagram to illustrate the basic flower parts so when someone is talking about pollen, stamens, anthers and other such parts, you may have a better understanding of what these words mean. Please bear in mind this is a stylized "generic" drawing and the flower parts will look different in each species. But hopefully from the diagram you will be able to figure out the different parts on any particular flower.

    If anyone feels like they can add some helpful information such as tips and tricks for hand pollinating, cross pollinating, gathering and storing pollen, personal experiences in pollination, etc., please feel free to share.

    I thought this might help since many people have an interest to trying to pollinate their CPs and create for new hybrids.

    Suzanne

    lol Schloaty. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] The anther and filament form the stamen. The stigma, style and ovary form the pistil.

    I loved biology. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] But don't ask me where the H Switzerland is because all I could tell you would be "its in Europe". lol I'm terrible with geography and history.

    I think my pic needs to be sized down a bit. I think its too large.

    Very nice work there Suzanne! Now, how about a diagram showing the different parts of the rosette? Lamina, petiole and stipules. Purdy please?

    Awww...thanks. Hmmm...not a bad idea. Maybe that's how I can occupy my time. Any suggestions for a subject plant? Somewhere I have one I did for a Venus flytrap when I was giving one as a gift to a friend's child.

    Sorry, but I had to beat schloaty to the bad pun [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img] .


    Very good diagram. Like many others, my highschool biology is a fuzzy memory. Not that it was all that clear at that time either. This will be a handy ref. for me. Thank you [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] .
