Surprise, Surprise, More Flowers!

So I didn't post all of my favorites from the San Francisco Botanical Gardens yesterday, so today's theme is Alien Man-Eating Snake Plants. At least, that's what they kinda looked like to me.

The first three are the same plant in various stages of opening, and is a little more innocent-looking than the other one.

This guy, on the other hand, is ready to devour any unsuspecting tourist that may come too close. It starts out innocently enough, all tightly curled up.
It's carnivorous-like nature is starting to show through, as it becomes a little furry.

Little snake tounges pop out, to attract it's prey to the waiting 72 million tongues in the center.And then it all breaks loose, and the alien man-eating snake plant shows its true wild nature, as it searched voraciously for prey.
The joke is on the alien man-eating snake plant in the end though, as it wastes away to a tiny stub.
