discovered this non-photosynthetic plant on someone’s blog. first time i heard of it. and you guys should check it out too. it’s great!
its a parasitic plant that doesnt have chlorophyll. it cant photosynthesize. so it feeds of nutrients that fungus gets. the diagram below explains.
the photosynthetic plant (green) translocates its food. the usual fungus (light blue) takes some nutrients, and the parasitic plant (dark blue) grabs some from the fungus. 🙂
