Homiful.com -- For those of you who want to collect unique ornamental plants, take a look at some of these interesting-looking plants. They look like animals. From monkey-faced orchids, dolphin succulents, butterfly flowers, and others that you may never have known about! Let's check out this "6 Unique Plants That Look Like Animals, for Cute Garden Collection".

False Shamrock Plant (Oxalis Triangularis)


The false shamrock plant (oxalis triangularis) is a flowering bulb that is also known as purple shamrock or wood sorrel. The little pinkish or white blossoms contrast nicely with the rich purple leaves, which are the star of the show. Oxalis has leaves that look like butterfly wings. This is why this plant is also known as a butterfly flower.

Parrot Flowers


The Latin name for this plant is Impatiens psittacina, although it is more commonly known as parrot flowers. From the side, it resembles a purple cockatoo. The parrot flower is a plant native to Southeast Asia. It can be found in Thailand, India, and Myanmar's tropical rainforests. Impatiens are a low-maintenance, easy-to-care annual plant. In truth, there are only three essential elements to producing and maintaining healthy, thriving plants. And it all starts with choosing the correct environment for them to thrive!

White Egret Orchid


Pacteilis radiata is a type of orchid that is commonly known as the white egret orchid. This orchid has a lovely blossom that looks like a white bird fluttering its majestic wings as it flies. Because it is difficult to find, this orchid is rarely offered as seedlings or adult plants. You can, however, purchase seeds to sow at home. Grows best in full sun or partial shade in evenly moist, well-drained, slightly acidic, humus-rich soil. During its growing phase, White Egret Flowers require consistent rainfall but not damp soil.

Monkey Orchid


Dracula simia is known as the monkey orchid because to its distinctive shape that resembles a monkey's face. This orchid is found in the mountains of Ecuador, Colombia, and Peru. Aside from its distinctive form, this orchid emits a strong perfume of ripe oranges. Monkey Face Orchids are picky and demand highly specialized living conditions. As a result, it is not the best plant for a new gardener.

Alocasia Macrorrhiza Stingray


Alocasia macrorrhizos stingray is a very unique type of Alocasia plant. As the name implies, this plant has leaves that look like stingrays. Complete with a sharp tapered tip like a ray's tail. This plant will thrive with enough sunlight. But keep it away from direct sunlight so that the leaves don't turn black. Use room temperature water to water the soil. Because it likes high humidity, this plant is best placed in a wet bathroom or kitchen.

String of Dolphins


This succulent is similar in shape to a dolphin jumping on the surface of the water. Its unique appearance will make the veranda more lively. If it has grown quite dense, this plant can also produce white and pink flowers. String of dolphins can grow well indoors if it gets enough sunlight. So place it near a window that is exposed to sunlight. Make sure the soil is not too wet to prevent the roots from rotting.
