Quoted from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ophrys_apifera :
Bees in the past have promoted the evolution of bee orchids. Male bees, over many generations of cumulative orchid evolution, have built up the bee-like shape through trying to copulate with flowers, and hence carrying pollen. [1]



I'm sorry... what??

I've been reading about plant sexuality for the past 20 minutes or so and I'm pretty creeped out by the flowers and trees all around me and all their open shameless sexual deviances.

Orchid is also a term for testicle. The flowers are called orchids because their roots kind of look like balls. So some botanist, going through the jungle, sees one of the most beautiful flowers he's every laid eyes on, decides to name it based on its ball-looking roots.

Speaking of plants named after balls, avocado comes from the Aztec word Ahuacatl, meaning testicle. If you look at an avocado after reading this, it will look like a giant shrivelled green brown testicle.

Watch any of the "Life" series by David Attenborough, and you shall be amazed.

Infact, I recommend checking out "The Private Life of Plants"

There's a kind of broccoli that's a fractal: each bud is a miniature version of the whole thing, and on bud the sub-buds are miniature versions of the bud, and on each sub-bud the sub-sub buds...

Yeah there are male plants that have sex with male plants but they're also hermaphrodites and after they bang they spore transexual babies and then fuck those too. Then a bee comes around and it jizzes all over it.

Yeah that broccoli looks awesome.

I'm actually finishing up a general biology class in college and we're on the chapters dealing with plant reproduction. I was clueless on the whole ordeal, so finding out plants, like humans, have sexes was surprising. I just thought all plants produced asexually (though some do).

That broccoli blew my mind. It looks nothing like ordinary broccoli. I would grow that shit in my house just because it looks so cool.

Another thing I found cool: brocolli, cabbage, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, and a whole bunch of other things are all actually the same species of plant.

Yeah when I was a kid it was my favourite vegetable. I've also seen orange and purple cauliflowers, although I may have made the last one up. I've heard this, and I'm not sure its true, that the guy who first bred brocolli (by mixing cauliflower and some green plant) is the same family that produced the first few James Bond films.
