If so, did you use acrylic flower beads like these as your starting point? Or did you kitbash the flower part of the plant using gaming bits and everyday items?

Hmm…those beads have a lot of potential for various projects, plant and…otherwise…

Fleshy bits for Tyranid organisms or other monsters – not everything has to be spikes! And painting plants in flesh colors creates some very disturbing results…

Disturbing to some. :)

Seriously though … if used upside down, a few of those other flowers could even be used to represent the top part of the triffid's "bulb" (base):

And upside down these could even work for the triffid "legs":

Or add spikes like these for the triffid "legs":

I still have 3 legged dollies if anyone wants them to use to make some of these.

I miss you playing with green stuff as well Dan. You and I need to get our finances straight so that we can start a game company together. I have plenty of stuff on the drawing board here but no time to develop it.
