One of these is a pinecone. The other is a parasitic plant to salal called a Vancouver groundcone.
I saw the parasitic plant 𝘒𝘰𝘱𝘴𝘪𝘰𝘱𝘴𝘪𝘴 𝘩𝘰𝘰𝘬𝘦𝘳𝘪 in habitat today!
Who needs chlorophyll or foliage when you can just steal your nutrients from other plants?
Accepted! Transcriptional basis for haustorium formation and host establishment in hemiparasitic Psittacanthus schiedeanus mistletoes | @FrontGenetics | #parasiticplant #botany | @AciniVasquez @Conacyt_MX @ElenaBuylla @Inecol_mx @LabSpiritu @Etelbehria @ruizlalo | Photo © Me
Popped to see the local Wall lizards and met this parasitic plant nearby.
I suspect that it’s Ivy broomrape. @BSBIbotany several seen at varying stages of growth.
Aphyllon fasciculatum (clustered broomrape) is a beautiful parasitic plant, typical of #Orobanchaceae. Parasitizes roots of Artemisia, Eriodictyon, Eriogonum, Eriophyllum & Phacelia bc it can not photosynthesize well & uses that energy to make flowers. Sandhills, Bonny Doon, CA
The Rafflesia arnoldii is the largest flower with a diameter of 3 feet. This parasitic plant smells like rotting meat and attracts flys to pollinate using its unusual liquid pollen!

Check out this #OpenAccess article from out latest issue on population #ecology of an endangered hemiparasite, American #chaffseed in the NJ #PineBarrens https://bioone.org/journals/natural-areas-journal/volume-42/issue-2/21-33/Long-Term-Monitoring-and-Management-of-American-Chaffseed-Schwalbea-americana/10.3375/21-33.full
It is a good day when you learn about a new plant. A parasitic plant, no less!
@_rachelhartman But I think the ground cones were my favorite thing on my walk today.
