Could you please provide me with some knowledge on something i have 
found happening in some maize plants i have grown for an experiment 
at school. it seems as though out of the head of the maize plants 
where it gives pollen, it seems as though some threads of silk are 
also protruding from this head where it=A0sheds pollen and develops 
into a corn kernal like piece? if you could explain to me what is 
actually happening and and any other information of this process it 
would be much appreciated!
