296. Cloisters

Cloisters are engineered plants, designed to filter airborne material and store them in tubers. The tubers can then be dug up and fed to fabricators as feedstock. Most of the plants are engineered from legumes, with different types of symbiotic bacteria made to sequester different chemicals.

These days there are many varieties of nanotech systems that can do their job better, but the plants can still be found in the Jovian Republic and wherever someone decides that an ornamental plant might as well do something useful.
