The word plant doesn’t evoke scary thoughts, but when you look at THESE plants…you’ll have nightmares guaranteed. Some of these plants can be dangerous, but most of them are harmless. Nonetheless, I still wouldn’t want to get anywhere close to these things!
#1. The Laughing Face Orchid – don’t worry we’re starting off slow here so you don’t get spooked!
#2. Lithops – not something I’d want to “hop” on
#3. Octopus Stinkhorn – well with a name like that!
#4. Rafflesia Arnoldii AKA the world’s largest flower – there’s something unsettling about this one
#5. Red Cage Fungus – ewww just ewww
#6. Spider Orchid – for the spider and orchid lover
#7. Strangler Fig – just walk away very slowly and it won’t strangle you
#8. Welwitschia Mirabilis – no thank you
#9. Amorphophallus Titanum AKA corpse flower – not liking this one either
#10. Black Bat Flower – so gross
#11. Bleeding Tooth Fungus – WTF!!!
#12. Burdetts Banksia – nope, just nope
#13. Chinese Lantern – what the hell? I thought those were man made!
#14. Coral Fungi – I guess this one looks kinda cool…
#15. Crested Madagascan Palm – I wouldn’t touch this one
#16. Doll’s Eye – What a wonderful name!
#17. Dracula Orchid – nooooooo
#18. Dutchman’s Pipe – Looks more like ball sacks to me
#19. Grinning Monkey Orchids – Okay seriously, what’s up with all these freaky orchids?
#20. Hydnora Africana – no no no
I would seriously advise staying away from these plants! Share with others so that they may know the perils of these things!
