Wow the third one is very cool, and the first is nice too, I didn't know they could be red too.

i also remember topics about sentient plants. it seems the admins have collected all those threads into this one single thread.

and i still stand by my "sentient plants" are impossible due to energy needs. however, animals that look like plants (and possibly work like plants) are possible. though they many never reach our concepts of sentience. insects notably mimic the plants around them, both as defensive camoflauge and ambush tactics. corals, sea squirts, and a host of other aquatic animals seem far more plant like than animal, but they operate on a completely different energy level than plants ever do.

why? because solar energy is a great thing to use for nutrients, but it's slow. look at trees, they require a huge area of coverage to get nutrients for their size. now imagine a human sized sentient plant... that thing will have an impressive array of photosynthesizing cells, and will probably be far larger than us. or, it will be far smaller than us, but will seem our size due to it's huge solar array.  these things would have problems with digestion though, if you know of the temperance of carnivorous plants you will understand how difficult it is for a plant to maintain itself when it's getttng its nutrients from non-solar or soil sources.

i know i will be purging my galaxy of sentient plants as readily as i will purge it of wandering phalluses or animals with wheels or other  free spinning parts. well, the latter i'll only permit if it's symbiosis. i actually might permit sentinet plants if there is also a well explained symbiosis.

How about a sentient plant that enslaves mammals to do their bidding?  That may help the enery demand.  They wouldn't have to move...
