The family tree of the plant kingdom (which scientists call Viridiplantae) is broad and beautiful... but also complex! Metaflora is a game that tests your green thumb by seeing how well you can navigate its leafy branches.

Your goal is to figure out today's Mystery Plant in as few guesses as possible. Wrong guesses will narrow down the answer by taxonomic rank (kingdom, phylum, class, order, etc.) The more your guess has in common with the answer, the more you will learn about the Mystery Plant.

For example, if the answer is “tomato”, your guesses might create a tree that looks like the following:

asteridscinnamondandelioneggplantMesangiospermaeSolanumViridiplantaetomato

There is only one Mystery Plant per day, but you get 25 guesses to figure it out! A new game will start in 7h 28m.
