Indian Pipe (Corpse Plant) (Monotropa uniflora)

I quote Roland: "These unbranched, low herbs are parasitic on roots or saprophytic on decaying organic matter and have lost all green colour. The Indian Pipe, with its single recurved flower and pure white plant, is strange in appearance." It can be found about anywhere in Nova Scotia. My experience is that it is best spotted where it is damp and shady, and where there is forest mould.
