Even the world’s most knowl­edge­able botanists won’t be able to name many of the plants on Pandora. In their at­ten­tion to vivid de­tail, Imag­i­neers in­vented 20 main species of plants and dozens more sub­species. So explorers of the area will come across dapophet, which looks like aloe vera, or gob­lin this­tle, which has a twisted trunk and bluish leaves, among many more. Some in­vented plants sit next to real ones, and it is some­times dif­fi­cult to tell which is which. They have rich colours dur­ing the day, but at night they are il­lu­mi­nated.
