Non-edible

A list of planets that are not edible.

Fungi

No'vum'can

No'vum'can is a vine-like plant that is considered to be so dangerous, that the enviromentally friendly Kingdom has it listed as a 'kill off', this is because No'vum'can is not only poisonious to people and animals, but also to other plants and spreads aggressively. It has a white coloring to it with thorns and a purple cloudy-like texture.

It's considered a weed, because it can spread across the ground but it's also dangerous to buildings as it if it gets into a crevice it can widen that crevice and possibly present a structural problem for the buliding.

Fruits

Nyuhe

Nyuhe is a long stemmed light purple fruit that can be found growing in rainy regions, it's sweat taste betrays what the fruit actually is. The fruit has a poisonious chemical inside that will slowly kill a person after they've ate the fruit.

Congesting the fruit will result in a person's throat becoming clogged with the substance and will result in death. This fruit is the primary ingredient in making glue or sticky foam.

Herbs

Dre'tre'ke

Dre'tre'ke is a herb that grows in wet regions, it's sap is toxic to living creatures and because of this it finds usage as a form of poison. Used in small enough concentrations, it'll only harm insects and small animals, while used in high concentrations it'll kill Daur, Laibe, or even My'leke.

Bushes

De'netre

De'netre is a kind of rose bush found usually in a very dry area such as a desert although it can grow amongst humid and even tropic places. The plant is non-editble because of the sap that courses through its veins, this sap is highly toxic and can paralyze a person within minutes. De'netree is known for its fire resistant qualities, in that it can stand high temperatures and even surface forest fires that would decimate other plant life.

The bush has a sort of symbolic relationship with other plants in that seedlings from those plants typically hide beneath the De'netree for seasons on end - during this time the seedlings are absorbed into the De'netree where the plant would force them into its 'roses' where they are then shot up into the air during a fire and carried on the fires winds to land elsewhere to bear new trees. De'netre are considered an invasive species of plant, because they are constantly growing, but the fibers within the plant are actually used in the creation of firesuits and other fire-resistant material.

Artificial Plants

Artificial Plants refers to the creation of artificial living flora, basically flora that has either been bio-engineered or that has been carefully experimented upon. These particular types of plants are extremely rare within the Kingdom, largely because of the ramifications of such experimentation. Because of this, artificial plants are grown under very strict conditions.

Jen'sihayse

Jen'sihayse is a tree-like plant artificially created in a lab and grown in several areas throughout the Kingdom, it is a plant whose sole creation was to be used in entirely the material known as Meina'slahe. It is not edible. It was created utilizing the DNA of a number of other plants, including the Li'yshe, De'betre, and Yetre. It can be grown only in tropical environments, largely due to its DNA makeup.
