so in my world the rivers and lakes (not sure about the sea yet) are made of blood that'll never dry up. The blood maybe fresh or not (I still haven’t decided yet,probably both anyway) i also haven’t decided if the rain will also be made of blood or not too, but if its not made of blood, then the rain will be rare, however i am still curious, if possible i want to see in both scenario.
in my world the plant originally just ordinary plant but due to the exposure of this permanent blood river phenomenon it mutate to drink this blood.
i want to know what would be need to make the plants especially tree to drink blood and grow, especially the root parts, and not filter out the blood from the real water either.
and if possible i want to know the effect like what happen to the fruit/flower it bear, or will it cant create such thing due to it? since i need the plant generally still can have flower and fruit.
the blood generally/majority is originate from human blood a bit mix with multiple type of animal blood, just in case its a crucial information regarding the blood components or made from.
fungi is out of the question i want real plant.
carnivorous plant is out of the question.
feel free to edit my grammar or the tag to be appropriate for my question.
