Smoking Nettles ??

NewBoy2NewBoy2 BristolPosts: 1,808

I was digging up one of 5 stinging nettle plants and it seemed that the other plants gave off "smoke " from their flowers after about 2 or 3 seconds

I had not been drinking so I think it was real !!

Anyone else seen this please ?

    It's just the pollen taking to the air - they are wind pollinated like grasses and Hazel.

    Do you know if I stimulated the release of pollen or was it just a co incidence ?

    could be either NewBoy. It happens sooner or later but if not stimulated by wind or animal it can be less obvious because it happens a bit at a time.
