Frostwort - A vine with white berries and frost-like leaves and growths. The plant is native yet rare in the Caru Province, and can be easily damaged if not harvested properly.
Highly sought after by many for its restorative properties, it also has some hallucinogenic properties when the berries are harvested early in their growth cycle.
A popular use for the plant is in anti-aging creams sought after by elites in the Core worlds, drawing very high prices due to the difficulties in locating and harvesting enough material. The fibers from the vines themselves possess a scintillating property, and crafters across the planet pay top credit for fresh materials to incorporate into high-end fashions and decorations, but they must be fresh and require a special technique to preserve the sparkle that gives it the value, otherwise it fades quickly and become brittle.
Saberleaf - A single leaf on the top of a narrow stalk. Found in small clumps.
A planet popular for decorative purposes, it is known for its chromatic coloration on its broad, wide leaves. Found in different areas of the world, the most reliable region being the area south of Lake Oren. The leaves are often used in layers and treated to form complex panels for decorative accents.
Along with its decorative uses, the Odho are believed to use it in the manufacture of natural medicines. Scientists are unsure at this time what other materials are used in this process.
Manaka flower - A bushy, grass-like plant, produces small flowers for brief periods of time during the summer.
A small, nondescript flowering plant, similar in appearance to a common weed, it has a thin, fibrous root that is used by locals as a dye for fabrics. The difference between the Manaka plant and the deadly Kanaka plant requires special training to identify, as the sister plant looks very similar.
Kanaka flower - A bushy, grass-like plant, produces small flowers for brief periods of time during the summer.
The sister plant to the Manaka, untrained people have fallen victim to its dangerous nature, as its roots hide very delicate nodules that burst when removed from the pressure of the surrounding dirt, releasing a toxin that is deadly to most organic beings.
White Tree Creeper fungus - A white and brown spotted mushroom, about the size of a human fist.
A variety of mushrooms found growing on the sides of trees, the caps of them are found to be edible, but most non-reptilian species find them too bitter to enjoy. Cultural scientists speculate that the native Ohdo may use them for ritualistic purposes, but have yet to find any confirmation.
However, during the spring months, the fungus can release clouds of spores from under the caps as part of its reproductive cycle. These spores are not seriously harmful to most species, but are considered an irritant to many, and can occur in great clouds known as Spore Drifts.
Candor Oak - A dark wood from the woods around Okoro Station, they are prized for its durable nature, and thus used in construction. While not a valuable export by itself, the artisans of Kunkoro are known to produce lovely pieces out of this hardwood. If it is not properly treated, candor oak will absorb almost any liquid that comes into contact with it, and accidental stains are very difficult to remove.
Waterspice - Reddish brown seaweed, between 15 and 30 centimeters in length. When dried, has some slight speckling from natural crystals.
A species of shallow water seaweed, Waterspice is a highly sought after ingredient by chefs around the planet, and especially on many Core worlds. If eaten raw, it has a salty yet spicy flavor that can easily overwhelm most palettes. When slow dried and ground into a powder, it is then mixed with a mild salt water/alcohol mix to produce a tangy/salty liquid that can fetch a high price in certain markets.
Due to the complexity of its harvesting and manufacture, and the very vulnerable ecology the plant exists in, export of this commodity is extremely restricted, only handled by small scale merchants who have qualified to handle it. Production of the Waterspice is handled by a small collection of companies scattered around the world where the conditions for its growth is found, and they are zealous in protecting their monopolies over the harvesting and production of this valuable resource.
Espeni Berries - Small sprigs of green leaves with different colored clumps of berries on top.
Despite the variety of colors they are found in, Espeni berries are all the same plant. The colors come from difficult to predict shifts in local conditions, as the berries are very sensitive to their environments. Available sunlight, temperature, humidity, even proximity to emissions of vehicles can all have an influence on their presentation.
While they are often just thought of as pretty curriosites due to this, Espeni berries can also produce a strong calming effect when dried and mixed with water or low-sugar juices. Their natural juices contain too many impurities to produce this effect without the drying process, so they must be properly juiced and the remains dried extensively to get the results desired.
