Species Name: Manapot (Potio Herbacarnevoirum)
Appearance

It is not too much unlike a cross of a Corpse flower and a Venus Pitcher, with a small "Island" in the middle of the pitcher. The pitcher itself is filled with a sweet smelling nectar. Those with the ability to see Vitka are said to see small sparkles, as if free flowing Vitka is trapped inside the nectar itself.

Properties

The Manapot, thus named for it's uses in magical potions, is a carnivorous plant that lures small animals and, on the rare occasion, people, to the sweet nectar inside. Once it has trapped prey, the flower closes, and slowly devours the prey, draining the Vitka to further enhance the nectar and tempt more into it.

Uses

Since the nectar of wild manapots are rich in Vitka, such Nectar (while Dangerous to gather,) is a well sought-after ingredient in magical potions and medicines for Vitka exhaustion. Beyond which, domestically grown manapots are a prime ingredient in Perfumes, for it's sweet citrus-y scent.

Species Name:
Snumbus' Carpet (lapides sacculi herbium)

Appearance

When first encountered, if it has not captured any prey, it appears as a bed of grass, though a telltale sign of this being Snumbus' carpet ahead of any grass is a weird "Ridge" around the outside of it, and the lack of any other grass in the immediate area. While closed around any pray, it appears as a multi-segmented sack, with a Bunch near the top.

Properties

Snumbus' carpet, when it senses any pressure on top of itself, closes up tight with incredible speed, trapping whatever unfortunate soul has wandered in. The wall is extremely durable, being incredibly tough to open, leaving you with a stronger danger of asphyxiation than being able to cut yourself free. however, It recoils from high heat, leaving Fire-elemental users with a clear advantage.

Uses

While generally considered a weed, even this has it's uses. If properly cultivated, dried, and treated, This becomes a popular bag, being nearly impervious to cuts and tears.

Species Name: Blood Rose (Rosa Haemo)

Appearance: What appears to be a single rose growing from ground soaked in blood. Its color is that of blood - old where the petals attach, but bright and fresh at their tips. Careful, though; its wickedly-curved thorns may not be toxic, but it takes an oddly long amount of time for the wound to heal, and it simply doesn’t scab over.

Properties: Its thorns are coated in a natural anticoagulant, preventing the wounds they create from scabbing over. It can also grow in any environment so long as plenty of blood is shed. As a result, it pops up on battlefields a lot.

Uses: Its natural anticoagulant can be harvested and used to treat weapons - or to prevent clotting in wounds where that is undesirable for medical reasons, such as one that’s poisoned or infected and needs to be bled. In addition, the blood rose is a potent ingredient in magic, particularly curses, necromancy, healing, and any spells involving relationships (bonus points for familial relationships).
