Waving Flowers
« on: March 19, 2018, 09:15:01 AM »
Does anyone know if waving around flowers is actually enough to make someone sneeze? I know that plants produce pollen and it becomes airborne so I don't really know if waving around a bouquet accelerates that process or if it's just a trick used in the stories.

it doesn't. it's the flower perfume that does that. flower pollen is such a small amount, it couldn't do anything. people have allergies because the amount of pollen makes their nose sensitive, then it can sneeze from other things. this pollen amount could only come from certain plants that make a lot of it altogether, filling the entire air with it.

"Check out the bees; they don't buzz around for money. They do it for free -- makin' love, makin' honey. Spreading pollen; how can you not fall in love!? And it might make you sneeze, but you better believe it's beautiful stuff."
