hypanthodium inflorescence is different from capitulum in And the answer is Absence of protandrous condition. Can anyone explain this ?how? I know protandrous condition is having the male reproductive organs come to maturity before the female. according to this http://www.sakshieducation.com/(S(2iwaqj3wm3ymsemwhqzaud55))/Inter(New)/..\EAMCET\QR\Botany\jr_botanysynopsis\07Inflorescence.pdf see the last line of last page It says "The opening of flowers in Hypanthodium contains no definite order" does the term" opening of flowers" indicate maturity here? If yes then the answer "Absence of protandrous condition" makes sense to me .
