Cat Whitney's thread of her favorite spooky plants includes some of the plant kingdom's most horrifying denizens: Aristolochia Salvadorensis…"looks like a flayed skull, and reminds some of Darth Vader"; Hydnellum peckii…"The infamous bleeding tooth or Devil's tooth fungus"; Antirrhinum seed pods…"the seedpods of some species resemble human skulls"; Tacca chantrieri…"the Black Bat Flower"; Monkey Orchids…"as I'm personally terrified of primates & apes, I'm putting them on here". (via JWZ)
I'm going to do a thread of my favorite spooky plants!
Warnings: Some of these look like gore (they're all plants/fungus), Trypophobia
