Best Places to See in BC - Indian Pipe

One of my favorite things to do
in BC is crawl around on the forest floor.
You never know what you are going to find,
from the odd to the bizarre.
Mother Nature never fails us in
that regard.

Take the Indian Pipe plant or
Monotropa uniflora.
You could step on this little beauty and
not even know of it's existence unless
you take your time to really look.

The Indian Pipe does not need
chlorophyll to live and therefore is
whitish in colour. It lives off of
a fungi that lives off of trees.
Complicated, but so is the whole
forest ecosystem.

Next time you have a few minutes
to wander in one of British Columbia's
forests, take the time to get down on
the ground and really see what is
happening there.
