This WHITE little plant completely lacks chlorophyll and is often mistaken for a fungus or mushroom. In truth, it is a parasite of fungi that feed on tree roots, and is often found in the shade beneath beech or maple trees.
This sriking little plant MAY be an anticonvulsive, analgesic, and anti-anxiety treatment. However, this is based on past use, not on proven science, so do be careful. Sources are unclear whether it is edible or not, but bears seem to enjoy them.
