To commemorate the father of alien creation in cinema Hans Ruedi Giger, a new carnivorous plant has been named after him.
Recently, American botanist Matthew Kaelin has succeeded in creating a new carnivorous plant based on the breeding of two different warm-cap plant varieties . According to the description, this new carnivorous plant is about 6 inches (15.24cm) tall, the body has yellow and red spots.
With its appearance similar to alien creatures , this new carnivorous plant has been named after Hans Ruedi Giger - the surreal painter famous for creating alien images in the Alien movie. With this shaping, Giger won the prestigious Oscar.

Share more about naming the tree under the name of the famous painter, the owner of the new plant Matthew Kaelin said: ' When viewed from an angle, the mouth of the warm lid opens with sharp spikes making me immediately think of the alien form created by the late Giger painter. In addition, the color of this tree is very impressive. Dark colors create a feeling like a nightmare. Therefore, I think this name is very suitable for it. '
Although the shape is different, in essence, HR Giger is still a formidable carnivorous plant . Characterized by living in barren lands, this pitcher plant is extremely fond of baby animals like mice, frogs, frogs or insects. Thanks to nutrients absorbed from these species, the warm lid plants can survive and grow.
