I spotted this spectral flora in a dark forest. Known as Ghost Plant, Corpse Plant, or Indian Pipe, this flower does not contain chlorophyll. It’s a parasitic plant. It feeds off fungi that have a symbiotic relationship with trees. Complicated and cool at the same time!
Some flowers are completely white, but they commonly have black flecks and a pale pink coloration. In rare instances, they are a deep red color. Wouldn’t that be creepy? But I still want to find one.
