Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: One instance of SCP-XXXX-1 is to be kept in a rectangular enclosure in Site-63’s Botany Wing. SCP-XXXX’s cell should be fitted with an air filtration system capable of condensing SCP-XXXX-2 into a liquid form and storing it in 215 liter canisters. Canisters containing SCP-XXXX-2 should be stored in Site-63’s Hazardous Materials Sector. Personnel entering SCP-XXXX’s containment chamber are required to wear hazmat suits equipped with self-contained breathing apparatus.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the collective designation for two related anomalies. SCP-XXXX-1 is a species of flower belonging to the Rafflesia genus. Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are approximately ten times larger than the common Rafflesia arnoldii, with a notably large central cavity. SCP-XXXX-1 specimens are native to the rainforest of Sumatra, Indonesia. SCP-XXXX-2 is an anomalous hallucinogenic pheromone emitted by instances of SCP-XXXX-1. SCP-XXXX-2 has been shown to affect most members of the Kingdom Animalia, notably Sumatran tigers, komodo dragons, orangutans, and humans.

Those affected by SCP-XXXX-2 experience vivid hallucinations. Listed below is a list of common elements to the hallucinations induced by SCP-XXXX-2.
A location or setting viewed as nostalgic or pleasant to the affected subject.
A feeling of calmness and general happiness.
The presence of a loved one or object that is emotionally significant to the affected subject.

While in this state, affected individuals will attempt to crawl into SCP-XXXX-2’s central cavity. Shortly after, SCP-XXXX-1’s petals will fold together, forming a tight seal around the subject. Over the course of twenty four hours, the subject is digested by fluids that quickly fill the chamber. All organic tissue is broken down, forming a “soup” that later drains out through an unseen orifice. It is at this stage that a new SCP-XXXX-1 instance starts growing within the vicinity of the original.
