In order to fully understand what exotic flora is, one must understand the definition of each word. First off, the word “exotic” means of foreign or alien origin. Second, the word ” flora” usually refers to plants or flowers that are from a particular region. So, putting these two definitions together we find that exotic flora is unusual plants or flowers from a foreign region. Exotic flora can vary depending on the region it is found, and the possibilities are endless. Exotic flora can have almost any type of features such as spiky, smooth, bright, wet, dry, small, etc. Most exotic flora are found in hot and wet areas because those are ideal living conditions for most flowers, however, there are some exceptions.
One example of exotic flora is the venus flytrap. The venus flytrap is a very peculiar type of exotic flora. It can live almost anywhere from the Carolinas in the USA to the Amazon rain forest. Most venus flytraps have a green exterior and a red interior with spikes bending in towards the mouth. They usually grow in bunches and look the same. They are called flytraps due to their interesting eating techniques, trapping flies. Venus flytraps are carnivores, making them one of the only plants in the world to be carnivores; that is what makes the flytraps so fascinating. They use little hairs in they’re mouths to detect when an insect is ready to be eaten. When enough trigger hairs have been brushed upon by the insect, the flytrap swiftly chomps down on and kills the insect. Then the flytrap releases an enzyme that slowly breakdowns the insect and the plant absorbs the nutrients. Many people like to draw these flytraps due to their carniverous lifestyle. Having a detailed drawing of a venus flytrap absorbing an insect would be amazing.
Another example of exotic flora would be fire lilies. Fire lilies can be found all over the western hemisphere form Northern Ireland to Spain, these beautiful flowers can be found at high altitudes. Due to their tendency to grow in altitudes above 1600ft above sea level, many do not get to experience their beauty in person. When they are bloomed, fire lilies have 6 petals and many stalks of pollen in the middle. The bottom of the petal starts at a light yellow and then turns to red towards the tip of the petal, representing a fire. These flowers may be beautiful but they are also toxic. They can grow in acidic soil due to their toxic levels and if a cat happens to eat one of these flowers, it can be fatal. Despite their dark side, fire lilies can be drawn from a safe distance. A perfectly drawn fire lilies can be almost as amazing as the real thing.
The final example of exotic flora I will be discussing is the Cupids dart. Cupid’s dart flowers are native to the Mediterranean islands. It gained the name “Cupid’s dart” from the belief that the ancient Greeks used to use these flowers as a key ingredient in a love potion. These flowers favor hot and wet climate just as the others. they grow in bunches on long green stems. When bloomed the flowers are very beautiful. They consist of ten blueish-purple petals with yellow pollen sticking out the middle. The bottom of each petal is a solid violet color, making it look as if there is a ring in the center of the flower. Each petal tip splits four times making it look as if there are more petals than actually present. Many draw this flower due to its intense beauty from the contrasting yellow and violet colors in the middle and then the lighter purple color surrounding this. I would love to have skilled artist paint one of these flowers for me.
In conclusion, exotic flora can be amazing art pieces. Most are beautiful by design, and others are beautiful in their actions. The possibilities of exotic flora to study and draw are limitless. There are thousands of species of plants out there that we can learn from and sketch.
