How do all plants have flowers? The process of plant reproduction involves a fertilization process that involves taking carbon dioxide and changing it into oxygen. There are eleven primary classes of flowering plants. They include mosses, liverworts, hornwort, club Mosses, ferns, Conifers, bamboo, ginkgo, gnown, and netophytes. You may already be aware that flowering plants also reproduce through a process called photosynthesis.
The first class is commonly known as gymnosperms. This includes oaks, phlox, Japanese ladder, larch, fir, sycamore, spireas, ribbon grass, meadow ruff, and common shrubs like Myrtle, crabgrass, and tokatsu. Most gymnosperms are single-celled organisms. There are two kinds of gymnosperms: the ciliate gymnosperms and the echinodial. Most plants belong to the ciliate class while most echinodial and ribbon grasses are in the echinodial class.
Flowering plants reproduce through two different processes. The first is through the accumulation of seeds through pollination. Flowering stems and leaves collect pollen from a nearby flowering plant, which contains chlorophyll for producing the green color. The pollinated flowers then release the pollen, which will eventually become seeds.
There are two ways that this pollen can be dispersed. One way is through female stigma cells. These cells are released by a female flower while still within the ovary. The other way is through male stigma cells, which are released by a male flower while it is in the ovary.
Most animals produce pollen. To humans, these pollen are classified into three types: house dust, domestic flower and animal pollen. Pigweed, a weed in the southern United States, is the only flowering plant that produces pigments, which are the major source of the pigment in poppy seeds. A house dust flower, such as the Hellebores, is produced by bees and other insects while an animal pollen flower like the mums and daisies are produced by birds and other small animals.
All plants reproduce sexually. One way to reproduction occurs through the direct process of sexual reproduction in which one kind of seeds separates from another kind through a process called budding. Two kinds of seeds can be alike if they are planted next to each other and then allowed to grow. However, they will not grow properly if they are planted so that the shorter or thicker kind grows on top and the longer or thicker seed bottom grows on the bottom. Sexual reproduction is also used to create some animals such as the clover and rye.
Flowering plants are categorized into three different groups based on whether they produce flowers or not. Oncidiums produce flowers, as do gymnosperms and aloe. Onychocarpon produce no flowers but serve a useful purpose as predators of other insects. Some gymnosperms, such as crassula, spinosporium and phalaenopsis, do not produce seeds, but do serve a useful purpose by preventing other insects from eating plants. Other non-flowering generics, such as Saxony and speckled cattails, may have seeds, but their beauty and usefulness make them little more than ornamental plants.
All plants reproduce by sending out spores, either through wind, water or air. Spores are small in size and wind speeds help to disperse them. The fastest and strongest spores will be the ones that end up in the flowerpots and that will reproduce first. Spores may also be transmitted by animals on the garden soil, by birds flying to your yard or other animals and even bacteria living in standing water.
Many types of fungi, both natural and man made, are capable of spreading spores. Fungi that reproduce by spore production are usually green or gray in color and have long narrow leaves. Fruits of some plants will bear a black appearance called a fern and can bear tiny, clear, brown seeds called rhizomes. All the normal garden ferns except the Button and rock ferns will reproduce by fumigation, where a saturated piece of cotton is laid on top of the fern to encourage it to grow, although you will notice that in colder climates, the fern will stop growing and begin to die back.
All plants reproduce by sending out seeds, either through wind, water or air. Those that produce flowers will secrete a liquid that is carried away by wind. Seeds will land on exposed objects on which they germinate and then float away to be carried off by birds or other insect life. Many kinds of insects will eat these seeds, so if you wish to plant flowers near your flowerbed, pick those with large, round seeds that will not be eaten away by birds. You may also wish to keep a supply of seeds on hand because many types of flowers will reproduce very quickly, especially during their blooming period.
Most flowering plants only reproduce once a year, while non-flowering plants reproduce several times a year. Some flowers such as the peony and chrysanthemum produce flowers throughout the year, while other flowers only bloom once a year. One kind of flower that is non-flowering, however, is the sunflower, which produces seeds only at the beginning of the spring season. In order for seeds to germinate, the soil must be moist and slightly cool, making the sunflower one of the more difficult flowers to grow. Even so, the sunflower performs well under a variety of conditions and will make a spectacular lawn or garden blooming area if planted properly.
