Gymnosperms do not produce flowers (as opposed to angiosperms), so there is nothing to attract pollinating insects. As a result, they depend on the wind to blow the pollen from the male to the female cones. Pollination can also occur if the male cones are present at the same time and situated above the female cones. In this case self-pollination can occur when the pollen simply falls or blows downward.
