What is Pollination?
Have you ever wondered how flowers stay alive? I know what you are thinking, you might be telling yourself flowers stay alive with water, air and sunlight. All of those answers are correct but, there is one important part that plants need to stay alive. Its called pollination. Pollination is the transver of pollen from one flower to the next.
There are two different types of pollination. They are called...
- Self pollination
- Cross pollination
Self pollination means the more basic type of pollination. The bee brings pollen from one flower to the next flower but that flower is the same flower.
Cross pollination means a bee brings pollen from one flower to another flower but the flower is a diffrent type of flower.
These pollinations help flowers to live longer and last longer.
Pollination is a great thing that bees do for plants!
