Most Painful Plants

Some plants look beautiful, but they can deliver pain and sometimes, some plants can even traumatize humans and other animals.

Some plants can cause extreme pain that cannot be imagined or described.

The Top Ten

1 Dendrocnide Excelsa
2 Gympie Gympie

It's a plant or small tree in Australia that, when touched, causes among the worst pain of your LIFE!

Like being burned by acid and electrocuted at the same time.

It has microscopic trichomes so small you can't pick them out even with tweezers, and they penetrate your skin.
Also, since they can't get out of your skin with normal home products, they'll keep on injecting venom until they empty, and they're made of silicon, which the body can't break down.

It is so painful that it will drive people, including you, to suicide, it's IMPOSSIBLE to imagine.

One time an officer used one of its leaves as toilet paper, and it was SO painful he killed himself the next second.

A reason nobody or I EVER want to go to Australia. - nelsonerica

Also known as the 3 leaf plant, it is a plant with a sap known as Urushiol, that causes painful itching and rashes especially for people who are allergic. - nelsonerica
