A cornflower (Centaurea cyanus) affected by SCP-XXXX

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is currently contained within a large botanical containment chamber at Biosite-38. All types of plant-based materials, including wood, natural rubber and plant-based fibers were removed from the chamber and replaced with synthetic alternatives.

The introduction of plant-based materials into the chamber is to be strictly regulated and requires the approval of at least two Level 3/XXXX personnel. Introduction of living plants requires authorization by Site command and the SCP-XXXX project head.

Following completion of the experiments, all plant-based materials that are either confirmed or suspected to have been exposed to SCP-XXXX are to be incinerated. Remains of living plants are to be disposed of by counter-occult specialists familiar with ecliptic residual distortion energies (ERDE).

Groups of potted plants are to be placed in all rooms adjacent to SCP-XXXX’s containment chamber and monitored for the sings of SCP-XXXX’s primary anomalous effect. Monitoring is to be intensified during the night of a new moon and the night of the winter solstice.

Personnel entering the containment chamber are to wear clothes made purely from non-plant based fibers. Any objects made from plant-based materials, such as jewelry containing amber, are to be discarded before entering the chamber.

Should SCP-XXXX-1 emerge, while researchers are within the chamber, personnel are to refrain from interacting with the entity and leave the containment chamber at the earliest opportunity. Interactions with SCP-XXXX-1 may be performed at the discretion of the SCP-XXXX project head.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a dead tree recovered from a valley within the Sahara desert. The wood of the tree is of a dark black color and emits a notable smell of decomposition. The leaves of the tree are of white color and move independently of surrounding air currents.

The main anomalous property of SCP-XXXX is of the projection of an anomalous field, which causes highly increased growth rates in any plants within a varying distance from SCP-XXXX. The exact size of this field is linked to the time of day as well as the moon phase, ranging from a minimum of a few millimeters at noon prior to a full moon to a maximum of 7 meters at midnight during a new moon.

Besides an increase in growth rate, the field projected by SCP-XXXX also induces a large number of mutations in exposed plants. These mutations can range from simple color changes to full restructuring of the plant anatomy. In the case of plant-based materials such as wood, bast fibers or amber the field has been shown to cause new plant tissues to growth from the affected material.

SCP-XXXX-1 is a vaguely humanoid entity that resides within SCP-XXXX. The body of the entity is formed from the same wood as SCP-XXXX but lacks the distinct smell of SCP-XXXX. The entity possesses a total of seven extremities, consisting of three goat-like legs, three human-like arms and a rope-like tail which serves as a permanent connection with SCP-XXXX. Two white vines in the shape of a snakehead form the “heads” of the entity. These heads are able to produce a variety of different sounds, including vocalizations in an unknown language.

When presented with living or freshly harvested plant material SCP-XXXX-1 will quickly emerge from SCP-XXXX and initiate a highly ritualized feeding process, with the entity performing multiple rituals of varying complexity prior to any kind of food consumption (see Addendum 1 for further information). Food materials are then consumed through multiple mouth-shaped orifices located at various, positions all over SCP-XXXX-1’s body.
