Hibiscus pollen tube & neem tree chlorophyll looks like very nice
ఈ రోజు మేము గోవేర్నమేంట్ స్కూల్ నుండి బయో డిస్కవరీ ల్యాబ్ కు వచ్చాము .ఇక్కడ వచ్చిన తర్వాత మేము ఫోల్డ్ మైక్రోస్కోప్ తీసుకొని దానిలో క్రోటన్ మొక్క లోని ఆకును తీసుకొని కొద్దిగా కత్తిరించి స్లయిడ్ లో పెట్టి చూసాను .నాకు చాల బాగా పత్రరంద్రాలు చాల బాగా కనిపించింది.నేను ఇలా చూడడం మొదటిసారి.చిన్న మైక్రోస్కోపులో చూడడం బాగా నచ్చింది .
The flower of the Tridax plant looks very small .when we go inside of the flower it looks very very small that is pollen grains . if go under the foldscope the pollen grain looks micro and many. that is the curiosity makes by foldscope.
The miracle of the flower can be seen through this post. those are the pollen grains of Hibiscus plant. we can see the pollen tube also which is attached to pollen grains .it play a role in the pollination .
