This Plant Has A Truly Unique Strategy For Spreading Its Seeds Around

Leave it to Mother Nature to always come up with the coolest, weirdest ways of doing stuff. Take seed distribution for instance. Theoretically, plants, being stationary, shouldn't be able to spread seeds too far, but plants have found a variety of solutions to this problem. Every spring, the air is filled with floating white fluff from dandelion plants and cottonwood trees. Other plants have ways of attaching, either by being sticky or having small hooks, to things that can move around. That's actually where the idea for Velcro came from. The plants in this video have taken on a very unique adaptation to spread their seeds without the assistance of the wind or animals. Seeing this process in slow motion is truly a sight to behold.
