Monotropa uniflora, also known as the ghost plant, Indian pipe, or corpse plant.
Photographed on Prospect Lake private property, July 2017.
This plant is white as it does not contain chlorophyll; considered parasitic because it doesn’t get energy from the sun, but from hosts which are a type of fungi, which in turn are in a symbiotic relationship with photosynthetic trees, therefore it can grow in very dark environments [i.e. the understory of dense forest].
