Let’s Admire the Top 5 Posts of Reddit’s r/ImaginaryFlora!

Summer seems like a wonderful time to admire some fantastical flora! For this round of Let’s Admire, we are taking a stroll through the otherworldly gardens of artist’s minds. Reddit.com’s r/ImaginaryFlora is a “subreddit for the sharing of all non-photographic artwork depicting flowers and other plant life and fungi, with a focus on the imaginary. Surreal works are highly encouraged, but all artwork is welcome.” We hope these Reddit masterpieces plant seeds of creativity and cultivate a smile!

If you died and became a flower, what flower do you think you would be? Although this is macabre, it is oddly comforting in a way. I love the last stage before the flowers because it is ambiguous – did they become a fossil? Did they become data in the grand simulation? Did they become powerful, ancient ruins that are the formula for life?

This artist actually made his debut in our Let’s Admire series in Let’s Admire the Top 5 Posts of r/ImaginaryMindscapes. Although I love the piece featured in that post, I love this one even more. There is so much to interpret here. Is that crimson-clad figure approaching with ill-intent? Is that Mother Earth struggling to forgive humanity for the destruction it has wrought? I would love a print of this piece.

Whoa, what’s the meaning behind this? The artist has written about the lore on his website: “According to the Zeta Reticulan Grays (who rarely should be trusted) the inhaled pollen of the unusual Teesborgs plant or “Telepathy Flower” produces a temporary but extreme enhancement of all psychic facilities, placing the user into a deep trance state in which advanced mental communication is easily possible….even with beings on other planets.” You can read the rest here. Cue the X-Files theme!
