Victoria amazonica is a species of flowering plant, the largest of the Nymphaeaceae family of water lilies. It is native to the shallow waters of the Amazon River basin.

The species has very large leaves, up to 3 m in diameter, that float on the water’s surface on a submerged stalk, 7 - 8 m in length.

The flowers are white the first night they are open and become pink the second night. They are up to 40 cm in diameter, and are pollinated by beetles.

Ocean here! Well, hello there, how did you end up stumbling upon this place?
Priding myself in wasting your time, I will be posting mostly spam · WiPs · sketches · cracktastic rants, etc. so I can keep my friends updated with completely insignificant nonsense about me.
Fun, right?

Ahoy

The infamous sea slug

Your average dance freak, crazy typing girl, flower ocean, homewife, lady crotch, oceanfish, pornsea, sauteed tuna, uo-chan; you name me.

I love creating OCs, collecting art and being pinned to vertical surfaces. Likewise, I'm addicted to reading, everything blue, french vanilla, wings and hybrids. On the other hand, I dislike bright colors, meaningless names and anything done without proper research. Heights scare the heck outta me and lies are my turn off. Spicy food is a no-no, typos and cockroaches make me cringe and Mary Sues send me running for the hills.
