Carnivorous H.R.Giger-Plant

plant

gigaMatthew M. Kaelin hat eine neu gezüchtete fleischfressende Kannenpflanze nach H.R. Giger benannt (via Dangerous Minds). It's Gigers Species in real life, kinda.

When viewed extremely close and at an angle, the intersection of the peristome teeth and the lid spikes of the cultivar create a frightening alien landscape akin to those imagined by the late H.R. Giger (Fig. 6). This, and because the plant is darkly colored and has such a nightmarish appearance, I feel that it would be a fitting tribute to name the cultivar for the late visionary genius Hans Ruedi Giger.
