filament A threadlike structure that holds up the anther
pollen Male sex cell that donates half of its DNA (traits) to make a seed. Usually a yellowish powdery substance that is carried by a pollinator
pistil The female reproductive structures (includes stigma, style, ovary, ovule)
stigma Sticky substance on top of the Style, it traps and holds pollen
