Cool shot. Do you know if these leaves are going to become tobacco-in-a-pouch? Chewing tobacco?

Decades ago I worked in indigenous communities where the older people, men and women, were fond of a dark brown square, about 2x2”, of fibrous tobacco. They would peel off some strands, chew and spit. Needlesstosay their teeth (while they lasted) and their fingers were yellowish-brown.

The tobacco grown here in the Connecticut River Valley is used for wrappers for premium cigars.

:hearteyes: What are they going to be when they grow up?
Per Wikipedia “Monotropa is a genus of 5 species of herbaceous perennial flowering plants, formerly classified in the family Monotropaceae, but now included within the Ericaceae. They are native to temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere, but are generally scarce
or rare.

Unlike most plants, they do not contain
chlorophyll; they are myco-heterotrophs, getting
their food through parasitism upon fungi rather
than photosynthesis. Thus they are capable of
living in very dark conditions, such as the floor of
deep forests, because they do not need any sunlight.” Common names are Dutchman’s pipe or pinesap.
