Plants according to their “Kinds”

Some plants are self-pollinators. And others rely on insects and the wind to carry pollen from plant to plant. But what happens if pollen from one flower kind lands on the flower of a different kind?

The chemical indicators will only allow pollen from the same kind—and usually just the same species—to enter the stigma to fertilize the plant. So, one kind can’t fertilize another kind.

Now, this makes sense in a biblical worldview. God created everything to reproduce according to their kinds. So plants have been designed to recognize and accept pollen only from their own kinds.

Yes, God’s creation account is true!
