Plant reproduction

In a nutshell

Plants can reproduce via sexual reproduction and asexual reproduction to produce new plants.

Sexual reproduction

Sexual reproduction occurs in two stages: pollination and fertilisation. Pollination is when pollen meets the stigma of the plant. Fertilisation is when pollen meets the egg. 

Asexual reproduction


Asexual reproduction occurs when small pieces are cut from a plant, they are known as cuttings, and they grow in the right conditions without pollen or an egg. To reproduce asexually, these cuttings require at least water and light.
