Not sure if the shot turned out clear enough but that’s actually a pollen grain that has been put into a solution that causes it to grow a tube. Normally a pollen grain will land on another flower and will then grow a pollen tube to insert its genetic information into the ovule. But for some reason, this grain decided to be an overachiever and it grew two. Weird right? But cool at the same time.
