The Slug Plant Bloomed.
Well, here it is. And in keeping with the general sluggliness of the plant, the bloom is fairly grotesque too. Fascinating, yes. But pretty? No beauty pageants to be won here, I'm afraid. And you have to click to enlarge this one, so as to fully appreciate the shiny, gelatinous center, and the gnobbly, tiger-stripped cat's tongue petals. And do you see the crinkly edge around the center section. Nature sure is weird sometimes.
