In conifers, the reproductive parts are housed within the cones. A conifer has two kinds of cones. Seed, or female cones are the larger, hard cones. Each of the scales that make up a seed cone has two ovules. Every ovule produces a spore that grows into a female gametophyte and this tiny plant produces egg cells. The wind usually delivers the pollen grains from the pollen cone to the seed cone, this is the yellow haze often seen in the spring in coniferous forest areas.
