Estopanthea (ess-toh-panth-ee-uh)

The estopanthea plant, commonly abbreviated as the panth, is a known plant that is very useful and has been appreciated in many cultures. It was discovered by Thea Bacco.   Etymology
  • 'Esto' means 'be it' in Latin, pointing to the fact that Thea Bacco had the power to transform into mammals.
  • 'Panthera' is a genus, and most of the animals Bacco loved to transform into were apart of this genus.
  • 'Thea' is notably the discoverer's first name, although it also means goddess, which may point to referencing Mellvana and Unbienna.

Basic Information


The estopanthea is a strong-stemmed flower bush that blossoms beautiful long green flowers. The flowers produce wonderfully aromatic smells, often used in perfumes and candles. The thick stem is a deep green as well, however, the leaves are blue. These leaves, called estoleaves, are made into salads and brewed in herbal teas.   They range in size, however, they never get any smaller than 2 feet at maturity. The tallest recorded specimen was 39 feet tall and about 24 feet wide. The branches that extend from the trunk are only slightly thinner than the trunk itself.   Tiny berries scatter around the bush, and, called, estoberries, these green berries have a taste similar to blueberries. They are comparable in size to large raspberries.

Genetics and Reproduction

Estopantheas reproduce asexually, usually when estoberries fall from the bush into the grass.

Growth Rate & Stages

It will take, on average, a little over two months to grow into their full-grown form. Flowers and branches will regrow in a year.

Ecology and Habitats

Estopantheas are best suited in wide forests, where they get plenty of sun but plenty of shade. They can only grow on grass.

Dietary Needs and Habits

The roots do not need much water at all, however, if not given the proper nutrients, the estoberries may become toxic.
