View Full Version : Landotholium

This sweet fragrant plant of Vega 3 is known for its seed pods which are golden bubbles.
When they mature (become fully inflated) a gentle breeze can free them and they fly - rising - due to their slightly lighter than air ballast. The pods actually have a little hydrogen in them. They rise several thousand feet before bursting and dropping their seed. Nothing else like them that I have seen.

It is a glorious sight to behold in the sky - especially near sunrise or sunset - golden starlight!
Their fragrance is exotic and a favorite of Queen Uma.
There are several medicinal uses of this magnificent plant. Attached files http://f295.f295.org/uploads/landotholiumbubbles_4613.jpg (http://f295.f295.org/uploads/landotholiumbubbles_4613.jpg)

Ah-ha! That explains it!

I continue to marvel at your imagination; your entire 'space' series would make for a very interesting gallery exhibit.
