The plants of Blue Paradise may not produce fruits or vegetables the plants themselves offer a food source to the creatures and people of the island, but there are some stranger plants out there...ones that have adapted themselves.
Strangler Figs:These plants can grow almost anywhere and will reach very high once rooted but they usually use another tree. They have their name from their roots growing downwards and enveloping, tree trunks, boulders and other nearby inanimate objects. After the roots have taken place they began to grow until they are slowly crushing whatever the roots have in their grasp, usually it kills the tree it was grown on and becomes a tree with a hollow central core.
Corpse Flowers: There are two types of Corpse Flowers in Blue Paradise but not much difference between the two. The Corpse flowers are one of the most well fed types of plants on all of Blue Paradise due to the being partially carnivorous. They get their name from their smell of rotting meat and it is that smell which draws in many animals, however the corpse flowers do not have anyway of attacking or constricting prey instead around half of their roots will go upwards instead of down this is because that the animals of the island will be attracted to the smell and if two different animals meet at the same flower it will cause a fight, The corpse flower will absorb as much blood from the corpses as it can before the animals come to take it away.
Dangler Tree): A strange tree native only to blue paradise. It grows to high lengths and grows thick vines more then leaves, the vines grow until they rest on the ground in piles. The branches have a small nerve inside them that when something touches one of the vines even the slightest the nerve will cause the branches to jerk upwards and recoil the vines into small pods from which they emerge, this sudden action is usually enough to tangle up just about anything, the vines have very small spines that scratch the trapped creature slightly and the spines/vines absorb the blood that is drawn. Struggling can cause the scrapes to become more severe and cutting through the vines is not recommended as the vines will usually be at dangerous heights when trapped.
Cordyceps: A type of fungi that has many subspecies. This fungi is parasitic and is probably one of the more successful of the plants as well as one of the more dangerous. The Cordyceps spread spores that can infect any living creature, usually insects but due to the adaptions of blue paradise they can infect larger animals, even up to humans (aquatic animals are immune to it however). The fungi infection moves into the hosts brain and takes as much control as possible, with insects and smaller animals its 100% control, when they are controlled they are forced to move to a high up place and sit there until the fungus grows out of their corpse and spreads more spores.
Fly Trap: The average Blue Paradise Fly trap when close to full grown is usually large enough to trap small to medium sized dogs. They have a strange nerve connected to a stem with almost no leaves and every 15 minutes to an hour the nerve triggers and the stem on a small drum-like chamber, the resulting sound usually sounds like footsteps of varying size, this helps to lure in prey but there are those that believe it may also function as a type of echolocation. These plants are rare to see outside of the Corpse Gardens
Cacti:These plants resemble Cacti but are actually more of a large, thick stump covered in thorns and flowers. The roots of these spread about 5 feet away from the base of the plant and up to six inches out of the ground. These roots act as a tripwire that trigger a nerve in the plant causing the thorns nearest the spot were the roots were tripped to be launched out, the thorns are coated in small layers of substance that prevents blood clotting which allows more blood to drip in the area. These plants are rare to see outside of the Corpse Gardens
Pitcher plant: these plants start off like a normal pitcher plant by trapping and digesting bugs but the pitcher plants of blue paradise can get very large, as they grow they slowly force their way into the earth by secreting some of their digestive fluids to weaken the soil beneath them. After submerged in the ground they usually keep their 'lid' partially open to allow the attracting smell to be released into the air but still remain mostly camouflaged. When the plant is in its underground state it's roots work their way upwards and release any of the excess nutrients it receives from it prey, it is believed that the roots might be able to detect vibrations in the earth and trigger the lid to open for nearby prey
Cape sundew: the flower of this plant stays very close to the ground and doesn't grow much, instead the plants tentacles receive most of the natural nutrition to allow it to grow more. The tentacles are coated and secrete a very sticky mucilage, when the tentacles are touched they quickly roll towards the center of the plant and somewhat constrict the trapped prey. These tentacles can grow very large and can trap animals as large as a bear.
(I will add others later)
