    Is this the one that has no chlorophyll and acts like a vampire, sucking it’s life from other plants?
    I’d guess from the title, that the name must be some variant on ghost plant.

    Monotropa uniflora – parasitic – micro – heterotroph in nature takes energy from green plants by way of fungi living in it.
