The mutant plant has cells within its bark and leaves that can create complex color changes. This can be used for communication, but mostly is a visual version of fragrance development (plants). Anyone viewing the display must make a saving throw versus energy with a penalty equal to the power score modifier or be under the influence of the plant in the same manner as fragrance development. Those under the influence are allowed a new saving throw with a cumulative bonus of one every minute to break the control of the plant. Typically when not used in this manner, most non-plants cannot decipher the communication signals sent between plants. The plant can turn off this display at will.
