Darcy delivers an extemporaneous 5 minute lecture on parasitic plant species while Teagan sweats. At the end of the lecture, she casually grabs him by the front of his festive sweater and sticks her tongue down his throat.
I asked this last year and the answers were so fun so let’s play again:
Your MC and LI* get caught under the mistletoe together at a party. What happens next???
(Can replace LI with villain if you want. 😈)
There's a parasitic plant that can see and mimic other plants which leads to my thought of white people being the parasites of humanity.
we all know #Forests are fascinating... but do you know what's more? #ParasiticPlants in forests!
To showcase research on these plants, our @IUFRO working group welcomes submissions for a special journal issue on @cdnsciencepub Botany! For more info: https://cdnsciencepub.com/topic/cjb-parasitic-flowering-plants-in-forests

for some reason a thing i think a lot about wrt Norse mythology and the death of baldr is the fact that mistletoe is a parasitic plant.

Mistletoe is a parasitic plant that lives off the nutrients and water from a host tree. Although it is parasitic, it will not kill the host tree but can weaken it.
The berries are often spread by birds from one tree to another.
A parasitic plant with potentially poisonous berries might not sound like something that would make sense as a #Christmas decoration, but, botanically speaking, that’s exactly what #mistletoe is. The plant has been a Christmas tradition since the 1700s.
