An amazing weird plant- Canada

An amazing weird plant seen today in Gatineau Park, Quebec! Indian Pipe, also known as “Corpse Plant,” is one of the easiest plants to recognize. Unlike most plants, Indian Pipe doesn’t have chlorophyll, the stuff that makes plants green. Indian Pipe subsists on a fungus that gains nutrients from a tree. It is a parasite of both the fungus and the tree. Now that is weird!
