Pollen-pistil interaction-events occuring post compatible pollination -

When there is a comparible pollination, i.e, the right type of pollen has reached the pistil, the pollen grain germinates on the stigma to produce a pollen tube through one of the germ pores

-

Only when right pollen has reached the pistil, it germinates on the stigma not all pollen
