Unformatted text preview: What is the stigma? It is at the top of the carpel It is sticky which helps catch pollen grains What are the ovaries? The ovaries are where the eggs are made How does pollination take place? Pollen grains brush against the insect, it flies to another plant, the grains rub on the stigma The grain of pollen grows a tube, which goes down the style until it reaches the ovary The male part joins with the female part to form a seed. This is called fertilisation. After fertilisation the petal drop off because they are no longer needed Enjoy :D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ge3EM8AE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ge3EM8AE...
