Cardinal plant "in action"

As stationary as plants can seem,

I'm amazed by how they stealthily they are on the move.

Don't confuse the flower from the leaves

Take for example the cardinal plant above.

Can you see it growing a flower (albeit very small)?

Plants are born and die in the same spot.

But its progeny are poised to travel far.

Cardinal plants are a common bromeliad in the swamp

Just add wind!
