Information from the web


Saprophyte: Any plant growing on decayed animal or vegetable matter, as most fungi and some flowering plants with no green color, as the Indian pipe.


"This curious pinkish plant lacks chlorophyll since it does not make its own food, being a parasite on the roots of shrubs, usually hazel, often growing in quite large clumps. It is quite common in Ryedale woodlands and old hedges. It is a member of the Broomrape family"

Hi and welcome to the forum(s). Yes, they are strange plants. They look like meat. They are rare. I'm lucky to get this observation and a decent picture of the plant. Do you know anything about the "Indian plant"?
