Monotropa uniflora and moss.jpg

WikipediaCommonsWikibooks (horticulture)Wikibooks (subject)WikispeciesFruit and seed clock

Profile for Monotropa uniflora (Indian Pipe)
Identifying Characteristics
Habit:Herbaceous forb
Flowers:Single white flower, 10-15 mm long with 3-8 petals.
Foliage:White scales close to the stem, 5-10 mm long
Stem:White, 10-30 cm.
Growing Conditions:Since it is not dependent on sunlight to grow, it can grow in very dark environments as in the understory of dense forest.
Life Cycle: Perennial
Similar Plants:Orobanche uniflora
General information:Unlike most plants, it is white and does not contain chlorophyll. Instead of generating energy from sunlight, it is parasitic, more specifically a myco-heterotroph. Its hosts are certain fungi that are mycorrhizal with trees, meaning it ultimately gets its energy from photosynthetic trees.
