The Flora depicted in the BIONICLE storyline comes in many shapes and forms.

Spherus Magna

After the Shattering, Spherus Magna had split into three celestial bodies, the flora drastically changing for each. After the Battle of Bara Magna, Mata Nui reformed the planet once more and restored the diminished plant life worldwide to its prior state.

Bara Magna

A Thornax Plant

Before its repair, Bara Magna's lands were rendered near infertile, with plant life growing sporadically around the planet. The village of Tesara had managed to continue to grow trees and plants, despite the barren nature of the surrounding areas.

  • Fireroot - An extremely thick, fireproof vine, often used for making nets or other objects.[1]
  • Thornax - A potentially explosive fruit often used as ammunition. It can also be made into a stew.[2][3]
  • Trees, vines and other plants that make up the region surrounding Tesara.[4]
  • A vine used by Berix to heal Gresh.[5]

Aqua Magna

As this moon was entirely covered with water, any plants growing on Aqua Magna had survived within it. Aqua Magna is home to several unique species of plants, including airweed, which enables underwater survival for air-breathing organisms.

  • Airweed - A type of seaweed filled with air sacs and found in the waters of the Pit.[6]
  • Seaweed - A plant which grows in the sea surrounding Mata Nui[7] and Mahri Nui.[8] Strong, elastic seaweed was used in the construction of Ga-Koro.[9]
  • Ocean Grass - Aquatic plants found in the waters around Mahri Nui.[10]
  • Thornplants - Aquatic plants used by the Matoran of Mahri Nui to defend the city.[11]
  • Poisonous plants native to the area around Mahri Nui.[12]
  • Various species of wetland flora native to Aqua Magna, whose seeds have drifted to the island of Mata Nui and Karda Nui.[13]

Bota Magna

Currently the Great Jungle on Spherus Magna, Bota Magna had previously developed into a moon orbiting Bara Magna.

  • The Great Jungle is full of dense forestry and plant growth.

Matoran Universe

The plants of the Matoran universe are made entirely of Protodermis, distinguishing themselves from plants of other worlds.

A Lightvine

Sentient Plants

A Daikau

Due to the nature of Protodermis, plants made of it have the potential to gain sentience. Some are created with this specific intent.

  • Karzahni - A prototype of the Morbuzakh that Teridax later abandoned; the Karzahni planned its revenge and was both enemy and ally to the Toa Metru.[39][40]
  • Morbuzakh - A powerful and intelligent plant created by Teridax when he tried to take over Metru Nui.[41]
  • Daikau (DIGH-cow)[42] - A carnivorous plant that mainly fed on insects and small birds, though it would also attack Matoran if one came too close. It could be found sporadically around Mata Nui, but primarily in Ga-Wahi.[17] Matoran erroneously regard it as a Rahi because of its vague sentience.[42]

Alternate Universes

Alternate Universes and Pocket Dimensions each contain their own unique flora, due to the differences from the main universe.

  • A type of tree that grows in the City of Silver Pocket Dimension and bears large, green fruit eaten by the City-Building Creatures.[43]
  • A type of black and twisted tree that grows in the City of Silver Pocket Dimension.[43]
  • A type of grass, which appears to be dying, that grows in the City of Silver Pocket Dimension.[43]
  • A type of gold-banded tree that grows in The Melding Alternate Universe.[44]
  • A species of grass similar to the variety found in the Southern Continent that also inhabits the Melding Alternate Universe.[30]
