Welwitschia mirabilis

Welwitschia mirabilis

An endemic plant of the Namib desert. It is the second oldest living organism known to man, with plants
as old as 1800 years. They are very well adapted to the desert conditions and most of the water is from the dense fog
that occurs in early morning hours.
There is a female and a male plant, and polination appears to occur by wasps or
other flying insects.

Beauty after dead ! Sometimes the most insignificant things for some people, in the eye of an artist is a masterpiece ! BV

One of the longest-lived plants on Earth . . . oh for the days when a caption actually meant something more than the arbitrary arrangement of letters and numbers.
