The force that generates the so-called explosion results from the pressure that forms within the fruit cells when it dehydrates. The bursts are sometimes triggered by an external factor, such as water, wind, or a touch, but the process most of the time occurs by itself when the seeds pods get very dry.What does seed explosion look like in plants?
This event differs from one plant species to another and is more thrilling and fun to watch in some plants. While sometimes this can look like a light explosion and even be accompanied by a crackling sound, in other cases, you can only see the seeds being catapulted away from their pods.How do seed pods disperse seeds?
Triggered by the heat from the sun these seed pods have a novel way of dispersing their seeds. They burst open with explosive speed and fling the seeds within several feet.How does a ballistic seed dispersal work?
Even though the term “ballistic” is used to describe this way of dispersing seeds, no explosive substance is involved in the process. The force that generates the so-called explosion results from the pressure that forms within the fruit cells when it dehydrates.
