{CE} Chimera Flora Entry


"Prompt 3: Cloud's Dream ☁️✨"
When the prompt was given, I immediately envisioned this angelic flora inside my mind. Making it into a reality takes a while though ^o^ I really hope it can be real. ⸝⸝ʚ̴̶̷̆ . ʚ̴̶̷̆⸝⸝♡

ᨳ Flora name: 
𝑪𝒂𝒆𝒍𝒆𝒔𝒕𝒊𝐬 𝑺𝒆𝒓𝒂𝒑𝒃𝒊𝒎, is the scientific name of this flora. As it resembles the divine seraphims. 'Caelestis' being celestial in latin. Common names given by people are angel's wish / sweet dreams. The flora symbolize good luck since finding one is rare.

ᨳ Physical Desc.: 
The 𝑐𝑎𝑒𝑙𝑒𝑠𝑡𝑖𝑠 𝑠𝑒𝑟𝑎𝑝ℎ𝑖𝑚 is comprised of six magnificent wings once fully grown, and has a stem likened to a feather. With two tiny wings supporting and acting as the leaves on the fluffy stem. Dreamy, soft free-forming clouds surrounds the flora mysteriously. With a sun/moon fragment right in the center of the clouds.The bulb-like fragment emanates a warm yet faint ethereal glow, brightening the flora at all times. On its own, the flora stands at around 15-20cm. It's known to be a perennial flower. Able to grow all year, even during fall and winter, unlike most flowers. When you hold the flora, you will notice that the flora is very light. In fact, it is currently one of the most lightest flora known to mankind.

ᨳ Life Cycle:
The elusive flora is born after a rare phenomenon wherein at times, an angel's feather that falls to the ground grows. Due to certain conditions, it can't be predicted whether the angel's feather will manifest into a flora. By chance, the angel's leftover magic may cause the flora to sprout. The flora does not reproduce and only grows from the rare occurrence. Nor does it bear fruit. At its first stage, a flocculent sprout will emerge from the ground. Once the seed manages to grow, it will easily grow afterwards. The flora is low-maintenance and does not require much water, nourishments or sunlight. When it turns into a seedling, the stem would have stood up, along with its tiny wings. During the budding stage, wings would start emerging on top of the stem, covering itself like a bud. Afterwards, once all six wings have become full-fledged, the wings would unfurl themselves, spreading out and fluttering. It will then rise above the ground and flap its wings, flying upwards to the sky. Like a magnet the flora will steadily capture neighbouring fragments and clouds, as well as its colourful hues. Once the flower fully gathers its clouds, it will land back to the ground. That is when it becomes an adult flora. If the flora fails to complete adulthood due to defects or extreme wind conditions, preventing it from flying, it will wilt and disappear into thin air. Nevertheless, the soil in which it last land will ultimately flourish and improve in quality.

ᨳ Locations:
Once fully grown, the floras are mostly spotted at higher altitudes of mountains and hills, where it can land at a faster pace. It seems to prefer suburbs and does not bode well with overcrowded cities. They are occasionally seen in places with less pollution. 

ᨳ Variants: 
The flora have a multitude of colour variants that varies depending on the time the flora flies up to the sky. It will change its whites hues according to the shades of the sky. For instance, when it flies at night time it will collect dark hued clouds, twinkling stars, and moon fragments. Colouration of wings and the stem are also affected. Any natural phenomenon of the sky may be displayed on the flora. Rarer occurrences such as rainbows, thunderstorms, aurora borealis, blue moon, meteor shower, solar eclipse, etc. may occur as well. Once the flora change its hues it will remain that way. The stem lining, however, only consists of two variants, either gold or silver. 

ᨳ Uses:
When processed into powder, the flora can be mixed with tea or other beverages. A subtly delightful sweetness will greet your taste buds. The main benefit of drinking the extracted flora essence would be experiencing only good dreams. No nightmares assured within the ethereal realm of dreams. Additionally, drinking it will temporarily heal muscle aching, stress and insomnia. It calms the body and make your troubles go away. Which is why it is popularly known as the sweet dreams flora. Only when it becomes an adult can the flora possess such ability. It is recommended for you to not over consume the powder at once. As one might not want to wake up after having such amazing dreams. The dreams seem to last longer the more the dosage. Waking up after will be extremely refreshing, as one would say. The stem with its wings can be repurposed into quills for penmanship. Moreover, the flora is also used for ornamental purposes as well as aromatic candles. The flora has a distinctive calming fragrance that soothes those who smell them. Products derived from this flora tend to be luxurious, due to its rarity. 

ᨳ Legends
Legend has it that if one dreams about the flora, after consuming the flora's blend.
That they should capture it before it flies away. If successful, quickly make a wish. As it just might come true!
