The Ghost Orchid
Dendrophylax lindenii (syn. Polyrrhiza lindenii), a.k.a. the ghost orchid, is perhaps the most revered orchid in the United States, if not the world. Its locations and stories are like smoke on the wind. The ghost orchid was discovered by Jean Jules Linden in Cuba in 1844, and the plant was discovered in the sub-tropical peninsula of Florida about 50 years later. Found in concealed swamps of Cuba, Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park, Big Cypress National Preserve and other guarded locations in South Florida, the ghost remains a mystery to most people. Some sources elude that it’s possible the ghost orchid has become extremely rare in Cuba or quite possibly now nowhere to be found on the island. It is rumored that pre 1980s the plant was much more common than it is today.
Today it is a rare and fascinating sight to see a ghost orchid in bloom. It is approximated that 2,000 individual plants reside in the swamps of South Florida. Of these, approximately 5 to 10% bloom each year, and of those only about 10% are pollinated by Cocytius antaeus, the giant sphinx moth (dubbed “the flying tongue” by Mike Owen). It’s theorized that the sphinx moth follows the odor of the ghost orchid like a shark in a chum slick back to its source, where it then uses its 5-9” tongue to drink the nectar out of the ghost orchid. This same moth must then find another blooming ghost orchid to pollinate. The sphinx moth is the sole pollinator of this flower and the only local insect with a proboscis (tongue) long enough to reach the pollen inside of the orchid. (center image)
Ghost orchids usually will have 1 bloom, but on some occasions a plant will have more than one flower and possibly multiple flowers on individual or separate flower spikes. On July 7, 2007 a previously unknown and outstandingly large ghost orchid was discovered in Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary in Naples, FL. This plant, dubbed the “Super Ghost”, was growing 45 feet high and had 11 blooms at its peak. It is currently the only wild ghost orchid whose location is not kept secret. (bottom 2 images)
i’m in love with peter pan.
you forgot my favorite one
Ah, damnit Internet, you made me cry before breakfast.
Now I want to be Peter Pan when I grow up. Which is confusing on multiple levels…
I love him so.
"that’ll take you somewhere weird" bless him
This is actually pretty much canon.

NO I WANT THESE
THEY APPEAL TO THE POKEFARM ADDICT IN ME AND THE SMALL CUTE THINGS IN SMALL CUTE THINGS ADDICT IN ME
Hook should’ve been the one to die at the end of 3a. The Neverland arc was over and he should have ended along with it. Then they should’ve spun off Neverland. Starring Colin, Robbie, Rose, and a good helping of Dylan cuz we need the rest of Neal’s backstory. The spin off could’ve ended with Bae leaving Neverland.
Honestly if they wanted a REAL shocking twist it shoulda been Hook to go
"It’s annoying that they’re already preparing to make a OUAT in Arendelle spinoff; it gives the (most likely right) impression that they want to milk Frozen - and OUAT - dry."
I hate that they’re at least contemplating this but never considered a Neverland spin off. It would’ve been so much more relevant.
I know right?! It makes me so mad that they didn’t even think about it, but they’re publicizing that they’re thinking of this.
There was do much potential with a Neverland spin off….idk wth they’d do with a Frozen spin off
Neverland? What about Sleeping Beauty! That story spanned two generations!
When Dothraki are defeated in combat, they cut off their braids so the whole world can see their shame. Khal Drogo has never been defeated. He’s a savage, of course, but one of the finest killers alive. And you will be his Queen.
anyone who says cats are the only assholes has clearly never owned a dog
Now, this, this is how you romance. This is how you show you care about someone more than you care about yourself. This is how you break down walls and heal old wounds.
Just look at Emma’s face in the last gif. Look at it and tell me that isn’t soft, tender love and blooming hope on her face. Just tell me.
