Psychotria Elata or Hooker’s Lips: The Most Kissable Plant

These gorgeous pair of red, luscious lips belong to a plant known as Psychotria elata, a tropical tree found in the rain forests of Central and South American countries like Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama and Ecuador. Affectionately, Psychotria elata is called Hooker’s Lips or the Hot Lips Plants. The plant has apparently evolved into its current shape to attract pollinators including hummingbirds and butterflies. According to Oddity Central, the bracts are only kissable for a short while, before they spread open to reveal the plant’s flowers.

  4. go to your local plant nursery, and take both the scientific name and nickname for the plant, if they don't have it ask them if they can get it, or where you can send to get it.

  17. First of all google. Second, uh, read? Third, It's a tree, folks. Fourth... rain forest?... hello? "a tropical tree found in the rain forests of Central and South American countries like Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama and Ecuador."
    So if you are able to purchase one online, also purchase lots of grow lights and get ready for a high electric bill and a visit from the police.

  23. You guys talk about people wanting to fuck the plant but these are in a genus that produces DMT... though I'm pretty sure these don't.
    Not sure which is worse.

    1. Is DMT a std?

      Delete
    2. nope DMT is a " psychedelic compound of the tryptamine family. When ingested, DMT acts as a powerful hallucinogenic drug." (got that from a google/wikipedia search)

      So... we're looking at a "big lipped" flower that might produce euphoric highs on contact. Those folks in Woodstock '69 could have used these for their "free love" fuck fests.

  24. All plants have DMT its just in very very low concentrations in most. dehhhhhhhhhh
