    Wow, I've never seen one either! Do they have psychotropic properties?

    Thanks for looking.

    I know shroons fairly well and I don't think this is a psylocibe, the psychotropic shroon with which I am familiar.

    Wild. Looks more like a flower.

    Fascinating. Never seen one of these before.
    We get them in the Adirondacks, upper state NY. It's a very cool plant, also known as the corpse plant and the ghost plant.

    Nice image. Indian pipes are a member of the Ericaceae (Heath Family). This is the same family as huckleberry, blueberry, and rhododendron. The flowers in this family all have bell-shaped flowers.

    Corpse plant, are these the ones who actually smell like a rotting corpse? I saw those featured on C.S.I. once, almost fooled Grissom, but not quite..

    The color of the plant is also like a corpse.
