  1. monotropa hypopithys

    Monotropa hypopithys, also known as pinesap, Dutchman's pipe, or yellow bird's-nest, is a species of herbaceous perennial plant that belongs to the Ericaceae family. Unlike most plants, it does not produce chlorophyll and therefore cannot perform photosynthesis. Instead, it obtains nutrients and energy from trees and fungi through a process called myco-heterotrophy. This plant is usually found in temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere in dark, shady areas where it primarily parasitizes trees through mycorrhizal fungi.
