The Ghost Plant
-

There are over 20,000 species of orchids, many of which are unique. The ghost orchid found in most European beech and oak woods, is a striking plant because it is entirely light pink in colour. Its pink stem is almost translucent, with leaves that appear as tiny scales. As there are no green leaves, the plant lacks chlorophyll, necessary to photosynthesize food.
The orchid gets its nourishment from decayed plant material. It relies on a fungus that grows in its swollen roots to break up dead leaves, and provide it food.
