Admiring beauty of these flowers just couldn’t resist studying under foldscope!🙂

It was difficult searching for the pollen. But the section through bud gave great results than mature flowers. Concluded that its a monoecious , dicot plant with unique seed dispersal mechanism. The seed bearing bud-like structures burst with slightest pressure when touched. Learning about this mechanism now. 🙂 Thanks to Lakshmi sir and Mayuresh sir who helped me identify the plant and distinguish between similar structures.
Happy foldscoping! 🙂
