Abstract: On the basis of the Bruhat decomposition, the subgroups generated by pairs of unipotent short root subgroups in Chevalley groups of type $ \mathrm{B}_{\ell}$, $ \mathrm{C}_{\ell}$, and $ \mathrm{F}_4$ over an arbitrary field are described. Moreover, the orbits of a Chevalley group acting by conjugation on such pairs are classified.
