Assassin vine

From PathfinderWiki
Assassin vine

An assassin vine is a carnivorous plant, much like its cousins the wolfberry bush1 and cheya.2 When not hunting, an assassin vine appears as a normal plant. It has the ability to animate the plants around it, making them strangle prey and deposit it at the assassin vine's roots to provide compost.3

Assassin vines are known to grow in Westcrown's Ramble Gardens, as are giant flytraps.4 A particularly leafy variety of assassin vine also inhabits the jungle covered Sudisan Peaks of the Valashmai Jungle in distant Tian Xia.5

Druids can combine their magic with ordinary grapevines and grow facsimiles of an assassin vine.6

Wolfberry bushes are stationary relatives of assassin vines that lure prey by camoflauging themselves to resemble less dangerous berry bushes.1
