Hey guys,

Just the other day, one of my relatives who played Myst came across these plants in a shop....

These are called Nepenthes. Lovely, although a bit carnivorous. Reminds you of anything ? No ? Aww, come on, think back to those days you were playing Exile...
Here is the answer, if you can't remember.

This is the big bad plant that traps the bird in Edanna, and reacts to electricity.

The Myst version is slightly different, with teeth in it's "mouth" (because, you know, anything with fangs is probably evil. This also applies to cats.)

Hope you like it ! :)

Wonderful find, Sirius! I've always been fascinated by carnivorous plants and Edanna was one of my favorite parts of Exile. Thank you for sharing it (and welcome to the MOUL forums). :)

Are you aware that there are relatively new Cyan Forums, now? Your account here carries over to them and you could post about this in the Myst/Riven section; Exile subsection. :)

Nepenthes villosa in particular is quite similar (or, the Edanna plant looks very similar to it):

NASA secrets moon tapes: I don't know why but the Edanna flytrap plant reminded me of this..

I mostly just hang around the GoW, but I thought it might be more interesting to post it where more people could see it ! I forgot about the new forums, though. Not sure it's really worth making another thread there, but I'll think about it next time I have a similar info ;)

Korovev and Artic Wagon: wow, both the villosa and the mummy look quite scary !
