Among the rarest high-altitude plants is the bonding plant found in the
mountain passes around the Valley of the Sparrows
. This plant is often
found near signs. While scientific research has never verified its
relationship to humans, it is widely believed that this plant creates
an emotional bond with anyone who finds and removes one. While good
mental health will not invigorate a bonding plant, this plant seems to
wilt and eventually die when its "master" becomes sad or depressed.
It is also been said that a wilting and dying plant can sadden its
master prematurely. Most remarkable of all is that the bond between
these plants and their "masters" is not limited by physical barriers.
Cases have been recorded where a plant has wilted and died from a
saddened master in another continent!
This plant can be considered a perennial as it will grow anew at just
about any time of the year. Once bonded with a human master, it will
never sprout again in the same spot as long as it continues to exist,
dead or alive.
