- The seeds furnished of a "parachute" (or coma) become airborne and are dispersed. As the tuft of hair (coma) dries out on the tip of the seed it unfolds into a parachute-like structure that carries the seed off in the slightest breeze. After a time the coma detaches and if the seed lands in a suitable place it will germinate and establish a new plant. Photo by: Cactus Art
