We are all familiar with the petals. They are often colorful, have papery wings which form the flower's corolla and help attract pollinators to the pollen receptacles. The insects or pollinators get attracted to their color and fragrance, so that the pollinators can carry its sperm-containing pollen and disperse it for fertilization. There are two types of petals, one is dicots, which are flowers with petal parts adding up to 4 or 5 matching multiples. The other is monocots, which are flowers with petal parts adding up in groups of 3. Although petals are not a part of the reproduction process, the pollen produced and spread by the pollinators help the process along.
The cotton candy flamingo flower, which is an exotic species grows a single flower, but is actually a cluster of small flowers arranged in a circular pattern. The rest of the flower resembles a cotton candy on a stick, hence the name. It comes in a beautiful combination of colors namely, cream at the bottom, pink in the middle and the small flowers are coral colored.
The flower's purpose is much more than being pretty or colorful. However, their color and scent is the major reason behind attracting pollinators towards them in the first place. Not only do flowers benefit from fertilization or distribution of potential heirs, but humans also benefit from this fascinating system. All the various components of flowers are designed in such a way that they work together and help ensure its survival.
When it comes to watering, roses do best if they have enough water, which means once a week a good soak especially when it is very dry, but you should check the soil's moisture content and if the case water twice a week. However, it you allow the soil to dry (for seven days or so), the rose will be encouraged to develop new roots looking for water and it won't be lazy! When applying water, you need to know that it has to be put on the soil around the rose bush and not on the leaves, if you water the leaves in the evening, the moisture can cause powdery mildew and your plant will then be infected.
