What’s happening now.
My plants are starting to lose their leaves and the pistols are starting to grow seeds inside. We have been observing our plants for over 10 days, maybe even 20 and we pollinated our flowers with q-tips. We rubbed our q-tip on the stamen of a flower and put the pollen that was on the q-tip on to a pistil of another flower. That is how we pollinated in class because there are no bees or humming birds or wild animals to pollinate the flowers.
I think in a few days that all of the flowers will have fallen off and some of the pistols will be breaking open and dropping seeds.
My plant started out as just a teeny seed. Then it just sprouted and grew a stem and then some leaves. But then a big change happened. The plant grew taller and started growing leaves. We pollinated the flower of the plant. After this the pistils started getting fat with seeds in them. I am excited to see what is going to happen next.
