thinkin about ghost plants

Monotropa uniflora - it grows white and can grow in darkness cause its a PARASITE and it uses fungus in the soil as a host to receive nutrients because it does not do photosynthesis on its own

@swirlz I love seeing them out in the woods, so cool and creepy

@swirlz Love these, we get them in our woods around here. I was delighted to learn a few years ago that they're sometimes called corpse plant 💀 🖤

@swirlz wow a plant parasiting very fungus-like on a fungus I love it
