The yucca plant is a plant with a rosette of stiff, sword-shaped leaves at its base, with a tall stem containing clusters of white, waxy flowers. The yucca plant can only be pollinated by one insect, the yucca moth, because the nectar glands of this orchid can only be reached by the proboscis of this moth. Likewise, the yucca moth requires the yucca plant for its reproductive cycle and food.
When the moth visits the yucca flower, it collects pollen and carries it from plant to plant. The female moth lays her four eggs in the yucca’s flower ovary, and on her way out deposits her pollen ball on the flower’s pistil, thus pollinating it. The seeds start developing at the same time as the moth larvae. The seeds are the only source of food for the larvae, so they eat about half of the seeds. The yucca plant could not survive without the yucca moth and vice versa!
God displays His creativity in neat ways!
