Of the family of Psychic plants, the psykopla's short stem is surmounted by a large bulbous head which changes color when pulsating. It has been said that the psykopla is able to direct psychic waves onto a prey to gain control of its psyche. The victim then becomes devoted to the plant and acts on its behalf in the protection of its habitat. This is, however, yet to be proved. The psykopla occurs mainly in forest and jungle regions it being slightly bigger in the latter environment.
