Pollination is the first step in reproduction. Pollen grains are shed from the anthers and fall onto the feathery stigmas.
Fertilization is the second step in seed formation. The pollen that reaches the stigma germinates and forms a pollen tube that carries the male nuclei inside the ovary for fusion with the egg nuclei.
The complete process from pollination to fertilization takes from 18 to 24 hours.
