Just playin' around with Photoswamp on a very wet and thundery night. This might not be a "conventional" ecosystem at all, it could be made of methane and frozen globs of carbon and water ice on some distant freezing moon. However, it is dependent on light just like most of our own plant life. Maybe something else lives there and finds these plants just the tastiest things ever.
