Seeding Question
    #1495460 - 04/26/03 10:57 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Ok i might be retarded for asking this, but What is the name of a plant that self seeds ex: Poppies dont need to be pollinated to seed.Sunflowers seed without pollination.... Marijuana NEEDs to be pollinated to seed, if female.. So what are the names of the two catagories? is Delosperma a self seeding succulent?? or will it need to be pollinated with another delosperma plant?? How about sceletium tortuosum.. im confused.. any help would be great.. thanx..:)

Maybe you're looking for the terms "monoecious" and "dioecious"...the first term applies when a plant carries both male and female flowers, the latter when a plant carries only male (staminate) flowers or female (pistillate flowers). A monoecious is therefore self-pollinating...

I forgot to mention, there are also a cross-pollinated flowers and self-pollinated flowers...cross pollinated flowers ( the majority of flowers) produce more vigorous seeds when pollinated by another plant of the same kind, or at least another flower on the same plant. Self-pollinated flowers are formed so that they can only be pollinated by the pollen from their own stamens reaching their pistils. To futher confuse you, there are also "perfect flowers" having both stamens and pistils and capable of producing pollen, but not necessarily able to fertilize itself, sometimes called a hermaphrodite or bisexual flower.

Hmm, if I remember correctly, apocarpic is the term you are looking for. Its either that or a plant that flowers once then dies, ex. Agave americanus]

I think the term apocarpic refers to the partial attatchment of carpels in a flower, carpels being the ovary/style/stigma part of a flower. Stonecrops and buttercups are apocarpous flowers.

I was close. Apomictic is self-pollenated.

Semelparity: refers to an organism that reproduces once and then dies.

Apocarpous (or apocarpic): is carpels that are free from one another in a single flower, so one flower that has more than 1pistil and they are not attached to eachother, see Theo nananctl's examples.


edit: err i was drunk:correction: a flower that has 1 OR MORE pistils*

edit again: btw a provisional faq will be up soon and it contains many useful technical terms one might come across. so be on the look out!

well,  had expected to replace it within like 2 days with the real faq, but then reality struck me and it'll be a while longer... when i post it will be not nearly complete, but have quite a bit of info.

As i see it the faq will be ever growing.

It was a tease though, wasn't it  :tongue:
