McGregor, USDA Originally published The First and Only Virtual Beekeeping Book Updated Continously.   Planting a Rainbow This brightly illustrated book is one of my children’s favorite stories. It teaches the basic concepts of planting seeds, bulbs, and plants. The fun part is the walk through all the colors of the rainbow, with various plants and flowers as examples of those colors. Pollination is the process of mating in plants; it is the precursor to double fertilization. In flowers, pollen is delivered to the stigma through a wide range of mechanisms that insure an appropriateFile Size: KB.

New York: Taplinger Pub. Co. ; [, ©] (OCoLC) Water pollinated plants are aquatic. Pollen floats on the water’s surface drifting until it contacts flowers. This is called surface hydrophily, but is relatively rare (only 2% of pollination is hydrophily). This water-aided pollination occurs in waterweeds and pondweeds. In a very few cases, pollen travels underwater. Pollination is of two types- Self-pollination and cross-pollination. Types of pollination Types of Pollination Self-Pollination. The pollination in which pollen grains are transferred to the stigma of the same flower or different flower of the same plant is called self-pollination. However, true self-pollination (autogamy) involves some flower.
