** Actually, in the cartoon the plant is called Audrey Jr. and is not an alien. Rather, it is a plant sprouted from a prehistoric seed.

* ''[[Creator/BruceCoville Bruce Coville's Alien Adventures]]'' includes among a sentient plant named Phil among its crew. He looks just like a giant flower in a floating pot and speaks by 'burping' air through his pods.
** His last name is [[IncrediblyLamePun O'Dendron]]. When the main character expresses astonishment that a plant could talk, he responds, "You're made of meat. It's a wonder you can think at all." Which is also a ShoutOut to [[http://baetzler.de/humor/meat_beings.html this]] story.
** For the record, his full name is actually Phillogenous esk Piemondum in the original editions of the books. (And most likely in the reprints as well.)

** The Poptop, a commonly-encountered beast, is actually a plant, according to source material. And like the Florans, their innocent appearance hides a thoroughly vicious predator.
