Every year I grow sunflowers. This year, all 12 of the seeds I grew germinated. They're all doing well, except for this mutant freak:

Being a Mario fanboy, I did this with it :P

That thing looks super cool if only sunflowers actually looked like that...
But this one actually does!

I don't think you'll end up with a nice result if you put it in formaldehyde...
Try it out with a regular flower first?

But, I do like the idea as well!
If only it actually grew with bits of embedded Ripley :(

Also quick question are sunflowers cross pollinators or do they need bees?
I was wondering exactly the same thing today. The plants I've grown are from the same batch of seeds but some look very different to the others, which is making me wonder if some are male and some are female. They are being pollinated, but I don't know if it's necessary. I'll google it :)

Oh and as for hiding in your closet...

Ok, sunflowers have both male and female organs but do require pollination as their pollen is heavy. Unfortunately I doubt the mutant sunflower from hell will be pollinated even if it is capable of reproducing.

So sunflowers rely on bees? interesting? Biology has always fascinated me.
