MINI MANDRAKE 1 by artist Carisa Swenson
Said to spring from the ground below that of a hanged man, the Mandrake root is known for its distinctive human-like shape and ear-piercing scream when pulled from the ground (which is capable of killing the unfortunate soul gathering it). While
folklore states a Mandrake should be bathed in milk or wine
and wrapped in silk to keep it satisfied, these are more low-maintenance and just appreciate some stimulating conversation and cake every now and then.
Note: Leaves are very delicate
