    • Plant Name
      Ghostbloom
    • Slang/Common Names
      Deathbloom, Graveplant
    • Appearance of Blossom
      Multiple narrow, white petals of varying length spread out from a small red centre
    • Appearance of Leaves/Stem
      Tall, thick stalk with a few rough leaves at the bottom and a single blossom at the top
    • Time of Bloom
      Midnight, no particular time. botanists think it reacts to something that fluctuates in the atmosphere, but haven't been able to pin down what
    • Local Legends/Knowledge
      This flower blooms when a spirit is nearby
    • Herbal/Poison Uses?
      None. It's poisonous to eat, and not especially attractive because of the long stalk and small flower; larger flowers or flowers with multiple blooms are preferred for decoration
    • Is it cultivated or wild?
      Wild; this flower is associated with death and the departed, so keeping it in or near the home is seen as bad juju
    • Locations it grows/can be found
      This plant doesn't need much water, and is found more commonly in dry, elevated areas. Because sunshine is irrelevant to it, it can even grow in caves or forests with dense canopies.
