I’ve just learned about Diphylleia grayi, otherwise known as Skeleton Flower as its flowers turn translucent when they’re rained on
@dreadpirateyarr woo Interesting 🤓
@dreadpirateyarr wow so beautiful 🌿
Holy shit, that's beautiful
@dreadpirateyarr that's incredible. So do the petals go back to normal when they dry again?
@GwenfarsGarden apparently they do!
@dreadpirateyarr that's really amazing. I so want to see this plant now!
@dreadpirateyarr plants are magicians

Nature is awesome! Thanks for sharing!
@Blackbuck you’re welcome! 🌿
@dreadpirateyarr They are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.
@Bella you’re welcome! 🌱
I wonder what would be the advantage for this kind of adaptation.
@JennieLee I’m not sure! Apparently the petals are very thin and that’s why they’re see-through when they come into contact with water, I suppose in a similar way to very thin paper?
@dreadpirateyarr those are fucking beautiful .
