    rattler, you're mostly right, but they don't attach themselves to the roots. They attach themselves and suck the food out of ... mycorhizzal? fungi (the fungi that have a mutualistic relationship with plants. the fungus gives 'em nutrients and the plant gives 'em food)
    Monotropa uniflora (indian's pipe) is one of them (the white one) and there's a similar one (i'm too lazy to go look for the species :P but I've seen both) that's pink/creamish... and of course there are others which are red, yellow, etc.

    :P I have issues. I can't just talk without giving links! I tried but It's just too hard LOL
    http://botit.botany.wisc.edu/toms_fungi/oct2002.html
    and I've seen (and taken pictures of) Monotropa hypopithys and Monotropa uniflora.
    I was REALLY shocked when I first saw an indian pipe! I thought I had discovered a new species or something :P (since they tell you that all plants are multicellular, photosynthetic, etc... and these aren't photosynthetic).
    I was like... is this a plant? that looks like a flower! but it can't be... maybe it's a fungus? but this IS a flower! how can it be a fungus? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
    (ehem... so anyway) then I showed it to my teacher and he knew what it was. DARN! LOL

    what's next? lizards with bat wings that can "fly" underwater? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
    you think you know something (all plants are photosynthetic, all fungi are multicellular, there are unicellular organisms, algae are plants, etc)
    and there are always exceptions :P
    but what can I say... that's why I love nature... it never stops amazing you
