Native to rainforest and grassland regions, Mist Blooms are found growing on the ground or on vines. Each is composed of a thick stem covered in waxy, purple-blue sepals to protect the plant’s core and its single crowning flower.
The Mist Bloom is named for its distinctive blue spores which drift from its leaves and fibrous blue petals. When disturbed by a passing creature the planimal emits a cloud of these spores, engulfing the area in a quickly dispersing mist. This evolutionary trait is the key to the Mist Bloom’s propagation as spores cling to passing animals, insects, and Na’vi, who then widely disperse the spores as they travel.
