Pollen Healing Power. The power of the flowers is concentrated in its pollen, the dust granules of the male flowers. They contain the genetic information for future plant generations in such a small space that bees can deliver them savely to the female flowers. The smallest amounts of pollen are sufficient for fertilization so that a lot of pollen still sticks to the bees. The bees have special collecting baskets on the hind legs. All pollen that sticks to the bees antennae or front legs is passed backwards using bristles. The pollen is also enriched with nectar while it is being collected and is as such safer to transport due to the improved adhesive properties.
