When pollination occurs, and the pollen has been transferred from the pollen-sacs to the stigma, it is de- tained by the minute papillse of the stig- matic surface, which also excretes a sweet- ish sticky fluid. This fluid is a nutrient so- lution for the micro- spores, which begin to put out their tubes. A pollen-tube pene-. FiG. 173.
