Okay, here are all of my plants that I've posted so far:

Oakut tree ~ This tree can live for hundreds of years, and is tough enough to survive harsh forest fires. Its wood is extremely hard, and is nearly impossible to chop, once the tree is mature. Its leaves grow to a length of twelve inches, and contain immense healing qualities. Its fruit are oval in shape, and encased in a thick rind, but are delicious and extremely wholesome.

Sardonian ~ A plant the leaves of which are valuable for medical purposes. They are good for causing the blood to coagulate sooner, thus stopping a stubbornly bleeding wound, and are also used to soothe the wound.

Suath Haman (Summer Ice)~ A low bush-like plant that produces light blue flowers all summer long. The flowers smell cold (if you take my meaning :D), and soothe burns and wounds, thus earning their name. They are extremely unwholesome to take internally, however, and are used in the form of cold poultices.

Elohoman ~ This is a large, hardy plant which easily grows to 6' in height and produces giant, dinner-plate-sized flowers the color of the sky on a clear, beautiful day. The flowers give off an overpoweringly beautiful smell, and are used by the more developed countries in perfume-making. It has no healing powers, and is just for beauty.

Thosklorian ~ A dark, scratchy plant, that has almost red leaves, and is covered in tiny spines. When brushed against, thousands of spines lodge in the skin, and irritate it, causing an itchy, red rash, and swelling around the eyes. The only way to cure the rash is to apply Suath Haman to the rash, and eat a leaf of the Malborian plant.

Malborian ~ A short plant that grows no taller than one foot high, which bears purple leaves streaked with green. If one takes a leaf and crushes it, a sharp smell is released, which helps prevent nausea and headaches. If swallowed, it flushes all poison out of the system, and neutralizes it.

Tevna Lojor (Terrible Heat)~ A plant that contains a poison which causes your body to feel as if it is on fire. If you do not quickly swallow a leaf of the malborian, you will fall into a fever, and soon die.

Amasol ~ A purple-green plant which produces pleasant-smelling leaves and red flowers. It is tangy to the taste, but also slightly sweet, and dispels unpleasant moods.

Parsenig Tree ~ A relatively short tree when compared to the Oakut Tree, the Parsenig Tree tends to bush out when chopped down. As you might guess, it is extremely difficult to kill the tree completely. :D It produces a black berry (called a Parsenig), which, although useless as a medicine, is extremely delicious. It is often used in pies and pastries.

Ranouog Bush (Arrow-producing Bush)~ The bush is armed with long spikes on every branch, spikes which are not only 1 1/2 to 2 feet long, but extremely difficult to break. They are tough, yet light, and are cultivated in order to produce massive amounts of arrows with little effort. The Ranouog grows wild on the banks of rivers, and often produces impenetrable thickets where rabbits and small animals make their home in the safety of an unused armory.

I will continue adding plants in this thread, when I have them. :D

This was a very interesting thread. You have richness of variety and several prime healing plants. Very well done. :D

Have you done brainstorming on this? What kind of healing qualities? Are the healing qualities specific or just general?

Is this fruit peeled?

What kind of 'sharp smell'? Similar to smelling salts or perfume?

You have lots of good plant ideas, Milly. I think this is my favorite so far:

It is a very general quality. Basically what it does is boost the immune and repair systems.

Yes, one has to peel the fruit to eat it. :)

Hmm, I've never tried to compare it to anything before. I would say sharp as in the smell of mustard or pickles, only not sour.

I like these plants, Milly. My favorite is the Elohoman - it sounds beautiful! :) The amasol is interesting as well, though. On the amasol plant, are the leaves or the flowers edible? I wasn't sure by the way you wrote it :P

*reminds self he needs to work on his flora more often*

Yes, it produces a sour green berry, which, although it is helpful medically, is not very tasty. :)

Tsakka-tsakka Tree ~ Named by the Wood People (name STILL temporary :P), the Tsakka-tsakka Tree is short and stout, spreading outwards rather than upwards. The Wood People prefer these trees for making their homes in because they are much easier to climb. The Tsakka-tsakka produces palm-sized, rotton-smelling, red-brown flowers in spring which, as the seasons turn, mature into long, bananna-shaped pods which hold five to ten quarter-sized seeds each. When the pods dry out, the seeds break loose inside, and rattle around, thus earning the name of Tsakka-tsakka. The Wood People use them as rattles in their tribal ceremonies.

How tall are Tsakka-tsakka Trees? Tall enough to build two-level houses? Do the Wood People not mind the bad smell of the flowers?

No, they are too short to build two-story houses, although they branch out so much horizontally that it doesn't matter. :)

*Chuckles* The Wood People are rather impervious to bad smells. :rofl:

Thank you for asking questions! :D It really means a lot. :)

*Laughs* It might explain why they smell rather bad themselves, too. ;)

N'Estui Taar - Roughly translated, it means 'honey fruit'. It's roughly the size of a peach, however the flesh is only about a half-inch thick, and within is a tear-drop-shaped seed suspended in a honey-like fluid. In order to eat the N'Estui Taar with the minimum amount of mess, one first cuts through the flesh and squeezes all the 'honey' into a glass, after which it is much simpler to eat the flesh.
