And the Answer is: This is a …

A couple of days ago I posted this photo and asked you to guess what it was a picture of. Here’s the original post if you haven’t chosen your answer yet: https://virily.com/virily_poll/poll-quiz-what-do-you-think-this-is/ The answers given so far break down as follows:

  • An insect colony (9 votes) – 39%
  • A plant (5 votes) – 22%
  • A rock formation (8 votes) – 35%
  • Part of a human body (1 votes) – 4%

Well the time to reveal the truth has arrived. And this is a photo of a … plant! It is a Stephania venosa, from Thailand, and that fat bulbous formation is called a caudex, used for storing water. I snapped it in Dublin’s Botanic Garden. Well done to all who got the answer correct, and thanks to all who joined in 😀

    • Yes
    • No

  1. I think I missed that previous post. My answer would have either a rock formation or a plant. As an ex registered nurse, I know it is not a human organ or bone etc. Also even though I enlarged the picture, there was nothing moving either on top or around so it is not an insect. The fact remains that it is an unusual plant. Is it edible?Or consumed by animals and or humans? Questions and questions….
