Let's talk about plants (botany thread)

Time to botanize some shit

I was just in California for work and saw this awesome banana bud.

I'd never seen a banana plant in bloom before so seeing this giant peduncle bent over with a bunch of flowers and bananas on it was pretty surprising.

Check this shit out.

Parasitaxus ustus



It's a parasitic conifer. Yeah basically a pine tree without needles because it doesn't need them -- it steals its energy from other taller conifers in the forest. It only gets a few feet tall. Sometimes it's pink, other times it's white or even blue.

Lawns are the worst meme.

I've been thinking about getting some indoor plants. Maybe spider plants, dracaena and aloe vera. I'd like to get some cacti too, but I don't think I could give them enough sunlight to make them happy.

Reminder that half of the vegetables you eat are all secretly the same plant.

If you like weird banana plants... check this thing out! It's called the 1000 fingers banana



There's apparently a ton of variety in size, shape, flavor, and texture among bananas. This guy eats some!
