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.

Hello! ~✩
This is my personal blog for spam, WiPs, sketches, nonsensical rants and what not; so I can keep my friends updated with completely insignificant details about me.
Fun, right?

Ahoy

The infamous sea slug

At your service.

Call me Ocean, homewife, lady crotch, oceanfish, pornsea, sauteed tuna, uo-chan; or make your own.

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. Last but not least, I'm an avid supporter of SFS, ARD and LYFP.
