We all know that Night Howlers are a crocus varietal known as Mindicampum Holicithius. Unlike Judy, plant husbandry really wasn’t a thing in my family, so all I know about that sort of thing comes from the movie. But what if there was a real-world equivalent to Night Howlers?
Leave it to a channel called The Theorizer to crack this question wide open! Not only does he identify what real-world plant is most similar to Night Howlers (even down to their toxic nature), but he takes it further and dives into the changes Doug had to have made to the plants in order to get the savage effect we saw in the movie. It’s very interesting to see, especially considering how many tiny, blink-and-you-miss-it details go into supporting this theory.
So, just how close are Night Howlers to being a real thing? Closer than you might think. Find out in the video after the break!
