Sagitas' flowers are large dark-red flowers growing in swamps and marshes. Leafs are thick and wax-coated, large and lying on ground. Stalk and leafs are filthy dark-green and could sometimes have dark-red dots and spots. The flower is steadily on a top of about four centimeter thick tubular stalk. Height of a normal wild living flower is about ten to fifteen centimeters, diameter about five centimeters and length of the leaf about fifteen to twenty-two centimeters. Petals are dark-red and could also have yellowish stripes. Roots extend deep, even depth of several meters and root-lump is rather large and partially hollow. The flower has many kinds of flocks and in the base partially below ground inside the root-lump is a hollow cavity, which is full of corrosive acid. Only Sagitas' flower is known to be secreting that kind of acid. The hollow cavity has also many very thin fibers. Those fibers drain nutrients dissolved to acid and transmit them forward. This happens because for some reason the Sagitas' flower canít assimilate enough sugar for its own needs. It could survive for a long time, but canít grow or pollinate without extra nutrition. Above the acid cavity are the long-legged carpels and stamens, which pollinate themselves. Usually the Sagitas' flower however spreads by the ground-root. The Sagitas' flower is a perennial plant that can live even twenty years.
The carpels of the Sagita's flower secrete liquid, whose aroma irresistibly attracts many small rodents and insects. For example a mouse climbs to the edge of the cavity and tries to reach irresistibly smelling carpels and falls off to the acid. Petals close instantly due to bump. Even dropping a small stone would cause closing of the petals. Small rodent caught by the acid struggles for a while, drowns and remains inside the flower for a couple of weeks and slowly dissolves to nutrition.
The Sagitas' flower grows in warm, subtropical and tropical climatic zones. Growing conditions must be moist enough and too much sunshine isnít good.
The Sagitas' flower is a good pot plant and the flower is a common decoration on a sill many self respecting ďblackĒ wizard and feeding the exotic plant is a hobby of many gloomy wizards. As a pot plant the Sagitas' flower needs a lot of water and some warmness. In the summer the warmness isnít a problem, but in the winter it must be taken care that the flower wouldnít freeze.
Pot Sagitas' flowers could grow to be very large especially if their owners take care of them with fat mice and abundant minerals. A Sagitas' flower grown in pot could live even thirty years. Unofficial record is at some Teserian alchemist, whose Sagitas' flower was said to be 36 years old and biggest ever met. Fate of the flower however was unfortunate: old woman from the neighborhood burned it because the flower had eaten her cat.
