The Triffid Plant (Wyndhamus vulgaris) is a variety of Flora native to Albia. It inhabits the western island, the Ettin Garden and various other places. It is a very hardy plant, only requiring in general that inorganic nutrients be between 10 and 200. Individual seeds, however, will randomly require a lower level of inorganic nutrients between 10 and 80 and an upper level between 150 and 200. It can grow in a variety of areas, including the desert, and is one of the only plant species, apart from the cacti, that can naturally grow there.
According to the Creatures 2 help document, the Triffid Planet reproduces by sexual reproduction, which is quite unusual for a plant. The seeds are dispersed in a protective bubble that prevents damage to the seed. However, many of the seeds may end up eaten by Norns or other Creatures.
The fruit the plant produces is known as Triffid Fruit and is highly nutritious. In its rotting form, it provides food for Ants and adds 10 organic nutrients to the soil when it decays, but it is poisonous to creatures.
The Triffid Plant is said to get its name from The Triffids, a variety of alien plants that featured in the film "Day of the Triffids".
