Behind the scenes
First appearance


The Goblin Thistle[1] is one of many plants that grow on Pandora. Several of them grow in Valley of Mo'ara.

Growing in a hunched shape and supported by prop roots and topped with passiflora, the stooped appearance of the Goblin Thistle is prevalent during the bioluminescence of the evening. Its leaves are a bluish color, and its trunk is twisted and a brownish-grayish color.
