Here I am offering Seed from Monotropa uniflora, also known as the ghost plant, Indian pipe, Indianpipe, Ice Plant, Death Plant, Birds Nest, and corpse plant. This plant does not need any sunlight, and has a close relationship with birch and pine trees, but can grow under other trees as well. Monotropa uniflora is a parasite and its host is the fungus that colonizes the root systems of trees. The ghost plant grows to under a foot high and its color is white and translucent. Pink tints and black flecks may also be present. This is a flowering plant with no chlorophyll. It is not a fungus. In fact it is in the blueberry family. USDA Hardiness Zones 4 to 8
