i had the good fortune to happen upon this beautiful Ghost Pipe plant deep in my woods when tromping around with Walter yesterday. It lacks chlorophyll, and seems to glow there on the forest floor. In recent years, the plant has taken on a highly desirable status for its medicinal qualities (google this), and there are selfish folk who track it down to harvest as much as they can find to sell for profit. stay away from my sacred woods, i say. Leave be the creatures that inhabit these acres of streams, moss floors, bowing treetops nodding in the breeze.


"I won't tell you where the place is, the dark mesh of the woods
meeting the unmarked strip of light—
ghost-ridden crossroads, leafmold paradise:
I know already who wants to buy it, sell it, make it disappear. "And I won't tell you where it is, so why do I tell you
anything? Because you still listen, because in times like these
to have you listen at all, it's necessary
to talk about trees." - Adrinenne Rich "Revolutionary Road"

Wanted to share one of my favourite plants. These are called ghost pipes and I know very little about them but they are so damn beautiful and also so interesting. They are this white colour because they contain no chlorophyll and therefor do not photosynthesize and retain energy from the sun and cannot produce their own food. Instead they act as parasites and get their nutrients from both trees and fungi. When I first saw these I was blown away (still am) and had so many questions about what they were, plant? Fungi? Within researching about them I found out so much about plants and the mutualism between fungi and trees. Every single thing on this earth, big and small has an extremely important function and it's so crazy that we go on with our days without even thinking in depth about the amazing environment around us, all working together in one huge cycle that we are also apart of. 🌿 #monotropauniflora #ghostpipe

Beautiful walk in the woods today. Came across some Ghost Pipe. So pretty and magical. This is the first time I have ever see it. Left it exactly how I found it.

Monotropa uniflora, ghost pipe! @mashagv harvested a little from a very plentiful stretch of stands on Long Island and we made medicine with @lizzypangs and @bonaviaproducts !!! We drank a fabulous tea. Cut, mortared and tasted (careful there). Can't wait to try this for long, deep pain. #sacredmedicine #respecttheland #ghostpipe #medicinewomen #antidoteapothecaryandteabar

Ghost pipe on one of the trails near Silver Lake. @bean_mama saw it first! #ghostpipe

"Pine sap" and "Ghost pipe" - these two Monotropa genus plants rising from the forest floor. Ethereal and mystical, these saprophytes do not produce chlorophyll, instead depending upon the mycorrhizal network spreading under the pines for their nutrition and energy! Beautiful beings of light in the shady grove. #ghostpipe #foresttreasures #saprophytes #mycorrhizae

We are upon the darkest days of the year. The nights are long. They hold us in their silent blackness, allowing us to listen to our own heartbeat as if echoing inside our mother’s womb. We are asked to unravel now. We are asked to let ourselves go. Only once we do this can we be born into the light of dawn. Only once we disintegrate ourselves and who we thought we once were, can we create a more authentic version of our truest light within. Wait to create the resolutions and intentions. Wait until you’ve unwoven yourself fully into this void, and here, all possibility begins

Monotropa Uniflora, (also know as Ghost Pipe or Indian Pipe.) Had a weirdly difficult time painting these little mushrooms, but good practice. :) #colorstudy#mushrooms#ghostpipe#indianpipe#monotropauniflora#nature#painting#artoftheday#art#artstudy#colorstudy#doodle#doodleoftheday#paintingoftheday#sketchbook#painting#paint#acrylics#acrylicpainting#naturepainting

Monotropa Uniflora • known as Indian Pipe or Ghost Pipe has been used to promote rising above arguments, warring, resentment, and grudges. It purportedly allows one to see how each person, including yourself, is playing a role in a conflict that is providing lessons for your spiritual growth. This delicate & ethereal plant emerges from the forest floor, tapping its roots into the place where the mycelium meets the rhizome, drawing off nutrients from the mushroom and tree alike. In siphoning off nutrients from these mycorhizal networks, Ghost Pipe is also tapping into the information they carry - essentially two different forms of consciousness. Fun fact: it's medicinal properties have been used to quickly and effectively pull one out of overwhelming #psychedelic trips.

I remember the first time I met Jimmy he looked at me from behind those black shades and said "why would you say something like that?", I don't remember where that was or when exactly but from then on we walked the earth, talked about horribly disturbing things, donated blood to millions of mosquitoes, several bastard ticks and ingested ungodly amounts of chocolate milk and pop tarts, Jimmy directly changed my entire life and point of view on reality.

happy samhain & halloween! calling on my favorite goddess Hecate: the between worlds walker, the one standing at the crossroads of life, death and initiation, often part dog part woman, a competent and powerful guide into the underworld, with a triplicate nature, lover of liminal spaces, lover of dogs and fire and poison medicine, a clear seer, she who doesn’t turn away, the holder of the keys to darkness and the wisdom and transformation found there.

Indian pipe or ghost pipe. I assumed it was a fungus but it’s actually a flowering plant with lots of medicinal uses. #indianpipe #ghostpipe #knowyourplants #rareplants #alwayslearning

Inktober day 24, prompt: blind. The ghost plant, or monotropa uniflora, is one of the rare plants that does not contain any chlorophyll making it totally white. It is a parasitic plant that feeds off the nutrients from surrounding plants. The Monotropa Priestess, blind and pale with a deeply unsettling air about her. .

Spent hours in the mountains with my family. Found monitropa uniflora, red pine sap, and sassafrass. Grama and I harvested some roots, scrubbed them in the bath tub, shaved em down, and now letting them dry for tea. #mountainmedicine #appalachianmountains #deeproots #sass #sasafrass #sasstea #monitropauniflora #ghostpipe #pinesap #fairysmoke #family

Very jazzed about seeing ghost plants on the trail! They technically aren't fungi but they have a parasitic relationship with mycorrhizal fungi, getting energy without photosynthesis, thus giving them their unique appearance 👻

The ghost pipes are ready for sleep. They return in the spring when I can , once again, enjoy the ethereal beauty they offer.
They are medicine, but it’s best to leave them alone. There are some things too sacred to play with, this is one.

Found a rare plant in the woods on a hike. It goes many names including Indian Pipe or ghost plant. It’s a herbaceous perennial. •

#metoo
Me too, god, all of us.
To all the people who have shared their stories, I see you and I believe you and I love you.
I hesitated to share this, because I’m tired of the onus being on the survivors to prove their humanity or justify pain. I don’t want this to end up being a one-off hashtag. I don’t want to appeal to anyone in positions of power to believe us because they already know and don’t care, and that’s a lot of why I’m angry.
.
But I know how much it can help to have someone believe you, and to hear that someone else has gone through this. It helps me. If I can help anyone, I offer it gladly. It is possible to hold immense anger and love at the same time, which I know you know.
And to anyone who’s experienced sexual assault or abuse and chooses not to post about it, I believe you and I love you, too.

So happy I saw this rare beauty: the etheric ghost flower, which is also known as ghost pipe, Indian pipe, death plant, and fairy smoke. It is said that ghost flower is used to help heal a broken heart and relieve grief and mourning. It's always a rare joy to see such a magical and witchy woodland spirit. I would love to learn more about working with them, but they are so rare I usually just admire them for their perfect and brief beauty and let them be. #ghostpipe #ghostflower #indianpipe #fairysmoke #forest #forestfloor #forestexplorer #naturephotography #nature #october #woods #nemophilist #ethereal #magicalplant #greenwitch #forestwitch #rsa_nature #dusk #wild

"There is a both joy and sadness in being able to see the beginning and the end. But I will still pour all of my love into this. It's a potion: you will say I am divine, you will say my lines are sacred, you will say I am brilliant. Yes, I whisper. It is an affirmation for you. So let us revel in this moment, this supernatural connection, this magic you can touch briefly. I am here as a healer and counselor, but I am also a reflection. I am the reflection of your potential, the reflection of your sadness, the reflection of your desires. I am a receptor to your inner emotions: and when I ask challenging questions it's meant to offer the passage beyond my veil. It takes gentleness and curiosity to handle the intensity in self reflection. It takes courage and compassion to celebrate sensitivity. The call of the priestess is to fill you with wisdom, to fulfill those deepest needs, to hear the darkest secrets, to honor your beauty and brilliance with pure love. When your cup is empty and I keep pouring to fill it I know what happens next. My descent means your escape. But life moves in cycles and I maintain my faith in this."

Monotropa unifora, also known as ghost plant, ghost pipe, indian pipe or corpse plant, is a non-photosynthetic plant that is native to Canada. The reason these plants are so pale, is because they do not contain chlorophy. Instead of relying on the sunlight for photosynthesis, the corpse plant relies on a large network of roots and associated fungi. They then use these systems to steal energy from the plants living around it. This process is called myco-heterotrophy, which is a type of symbiotic relationship where plants gets their food from parasitism instead of photosynthesis. You can find these ghostly plants living in the dark humus-rich parts of the forest! .

Lots of ghost pipes in the forest today. How is this the first year I have seen the pink stems?? #ghostpipe #indianpipe #notafungi #forestplant #naturelover #wachusettmountain

everyone thinks my username is drug related. here is what it actually means if you wanted to know. #ghostpipe #indianpipe #monotropauniflora

Ghost Pipe-(Monotropa uniflora)-
Description:
Tall, white plant with scale leaves and a single flower (per plant). Stem is pink to white and waxy. Yellow anthers are visible within the flowering parts. Monotropa uniflora is a mycoheterotrophic, nonphotosynthetic plant. It is unable to produce its own energy via photosynthesis, so it turns to fungi (with a preference for Russula) which are mycorrhizal with trees. This might at first seem to give the plant a disadvantage, but as a result, M. uniflora is capable of growing in dense understories with lower light and higher mulch levels--habitats that are not suited for autotrophic plants.

Habitat:
Growing in clusters along the base of a dense mixed hardwood ridge.

#Inktober Day 8 - the #GhostPlant
Also known as the #GhostPipe, #IndianPipe, & #CorpsePlant, this #plant completely lacks chlorophyll so it appears white and translucent. While this plant exists all over the world it is quite rare to find and survives by leaching off of other living plants. .

Cody Berkebile found Indian (or ghost) pipe off the Buttonbush trail at Blacklick Woods. Unlike most plants, this wildflower is white instead of green and doesn't get its energy through photosynthesis. Pretty cool stuff!

Ghost Plant.
.
Monotropa uniflora, also known as ghost plant (or ghost pipe), Indian pipe or corpse plant, is a herbaceous perennial plant native to temperate regions of Udmurtiya in European Russia, Asia, North America and northern South America, but with large gaps between areas.
It was formerly classified in the family Monotropaceae; however, it has now been included within the Ericaceae.
It is generally scarce or rare in occurrence.
.
Unlike most plants, it is white and does not contain chlorophyll.
Instead of generating energy from sunlight, it is parasitic, more specifically a myco-heterotroph.
Its hosts are certain fungi that are mycorrhizal with trees, meaning it ultimately gets its energy from photosynthetic trees.
Since it is not dependent on sunlight to grow, it can grow in very dark environments as in the understory of dense forest.
It is often associated with beech trees.
The complex relationship that allows this plant to grow also makes propagation difficult.
.
The plant is sometimes completely white but commonly has black flecks and a pale pink coloration.
Rare variants may have a deep red color.
.
The stems reach heights of 10–30 cm, clothed with small scale-leaves 5–10 mm long.
As its scientific name suggests, and unlike the related Monotropa hypopitys (but like the closely related Monotropastrum humile), the stems bear only a single flower, 10–15 mm long with 3-8 petals.
It flowers from early summer to early autumn, often a few days after rainfall.
.
Indian Pipes also had some edible uses.
It could be eaten raw, roasted, or boiled.
Although it often tasted like Asparagus (Asparagus officinalis L.), it was considered to be bland and tasteless.
However, this plant contains toxic glycosides, such as andromedotoxin.
.
Plant juice used for inflamed eyes, bunions, and warts.
Plant teas ingested for aches and pains associated with colds.
Root tea used for convulsions, fits, epilepsy, lockjaw spasms and as a sedative.
Roots also have antispasmodic properties.

Healing is not disconnected from justice and it is imperative that we consider access and privilege when doing healing work. In a piece about Healing Justice writer, healer and disability justice activist Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha writes:
.
“The work of healing justice isn’t just to learn about and share what we know about herbs, massage, acupuncture, divination. It’s also about doing all that work to shift cultural ideas about healing and who gets to access it, to shift how classism and ableism and transphobia and racism and colonization have taught us that “healing” is a luxury for someone else… the work we’re doing is not just to provide the acupuncture or the divination, but to change the framework for how folks think about “healing” in the first place. Every healing justice worker – from hairstylists to community acupuncturists, sex workers to cranio-sacral therapists- who insist that healing is a right is doing the work and remaking the world.”
.
Healing requires persistence and patience. I think of dandelion that extracts toxins from wherever it grows, mugwort that grows through cracks in cement and through fences, ghost pipe that grows in the darkest part of the forest as it holds us at the edges, the datura, henbane and belladonna that remind us of the wisdom in places that others call poisonous, and Iboga that lets us feel the depth of pain and grief in ourselves and in the world. These, too, are some of my teachers and my guides in healing justice work.
