Monotropa uniflora

Monotropa uniflora and moss.jpg

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

Profile for Monotropa uniflora (Indian Pipe)

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.
