Pollination of a flower through the agency of water. Hydrophily is a rare type of pollination employed by hydrophytes (aquatic plants), and can occur in one of two ways. Either the pollen grains themselves are carried on or under the surface of the water, or the male flowers break off and float along until they come into contact with a female flower.
