Creepy! tentacles?? or simply germinating pollen grain

#1 Post by Kevin_r » Thu Aug 27, 2020 3:02 pm

I found this on a glue imprint on leaves.
I wish you could help me identity this quite creepy micro-graph.

I think it is a germinating pollen grains.

What do you think?

I would go with Trichomes as well

Same here, looks like a trichome that remained with the glue.

I find this very interesting.
The plant doesn’t look like it has trichomes, tho.
