Staminate duration in Lobelia cardinalis is significantly affected by the amount and frequency of pollen removal from the anther tube. Repeated pollen removal shortens the staminate phase, while limited or no pollen removal greatly increases this phase. Pistillate duration is decreased significantly by both pollination and an increase in the duration of the staminate phase. -from Authors
