These guys are super cool! Ghosty and beautiful. They are a crazy class of plant called mycoheterotrophs - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myco-heterotrophy?wprov=sfla1 - It's like meta-parisitism: They tap into the symbiotic mycorhizzal network and draw food from other plants via fungi. Nature is wild! Good find!
Thank you for posting this! I saw something like these in the woods of New York last week and wanted to figure out what they were!
They have flowers, stems, leaves, but no chlorophyll. Wonderful to see them when you do. There are a few other types that are similar in the SE Appalachians.
