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 😀
Did you guess correctly, that the photo was of a plant?
