This is the first thing that comes to my mind, can't help it:


El Pirahna Plant by The B.O.B.

I'll try to think of something completely new and original

Ok, so they can't walk or talk. But 'plant' is bit generic. Are we talking about fruits and veggies? Bushes? Trees? Algae? Wines? Flowers? Above ground? Below ground? Under water? Outer space?

Oh you~!
It should be a whole plant. So, for example, no Intergalactic Purple Lemons (IPL), but a bush bearing IPLs would be ok.

I guess algae-type things should be ok, but strictly speaking, algae aren't exactly plants...

Also, sorry for the racism - to both you and Snader :o

Might enter this; heres something I knocked up in 45 mins. still need a LOT of work so consider it a WIP. I'm taking the challenge of no greens head on.
It's supposed to be some kind of spiky gourd/Melon and lilly type hybrid.

Just a quick concept WIP. I gotta get that blob to look more like a baby before (and if) I submit this, and probably add a few more babies hanging off the branches, and of course get some more colors in there. I'm only using 12 out of 24.
And yeah, concept is a tree that grows toddlers. That doesn't count as living, does it?
