Pollination Wand

Give the bees a helping hand! Increase your harvest by using your pollination wand to spread your plants' pollen throughout your garden. Use it on tomatoes, peppers, strawberries, cucumbers and other flowering fruits and vegetables.



This wand takes on the role of bees to facilitate pollination. The main purpose is to have higher seed production. People do this to grow fruits and vegetables.

Understanding Flower Anatomy

Before using the pollination wand, it is important to understand the anatomy of flowers. Flowers have male and female reproductive organs. The male part is called the stamen, which consists of a filament supporting an anther where pollen grains are produced. The female part is called the pistil, which includes the stigma, style and ovary. The stigma is the receptive surface for pollen grains, while the ovary contains ovules, the future seeds.





  • Collect pollen from the anthers of male flowers using the bristles of the wand. Brush gently to dislodge pollen grains onto the wand.

  • Transfer the collected pollen to the stigmas of female flowers. This can be done by gently touching the stigma with the pollen laden end of the wand.

  • It is essential to ensure that pollen grains are effectively transferred to the stigma to facilitate fertilization and seed development. The pollen grains adhere to the sticky surface of the stigma and then germinate, forming pollen tubes that grow down through the style to reach the ovules in the ovary. 
  • Depending on the plant species and the desired level of pollination, the process may need to be repeated multiple times across different flowers or plants.



  • Increases crop yield and quality.
  • Useful when natural pollinators are scarce or when environmental conditions limit natural pollination.


The pollination wand is a tool designed to mimic the actions of insects by manually transferring pollen from the male reproductive organs to the female reproductive organs of flowers. It stimulates the natural process of pollination in situations where natural methods (by insects or wind) are insufficient. It aids in transferring pollen from male to female flowers, ensuring the successful fertilization and development of fruits or seeds. It serves as a valuable tool for growers and horticulturists to enchance the reproductive success of plants and ensures optimal yields.
