"Whatever you do, don't touch the vines."
"And why is that?"
"Because the plants don't like it. And they have big, sharp teeth."
Jaybo Hood warns Obi-Wan Kenobi about the reeksa[src]

Reeksa was a species of carnivorous plant that grew on Iego.[1] The plant survived in low-light conditions at the bottom of canyons by capturing live prey and digesting them.[2] It possessed sharpened spikes for teeth and deadly thorns along the edge of its stalks. The reeksa displayed animal-like predatory aggression in its attempts to feed, and was capable of creating utterances akin to those of a snake.[1] Reeksa root was an essential ingredient in the cure for the fatal Blue Shadow Virus.[2]
