This sickly green fungus stinks of rotting meat and is the one vegetarian staple of the Uruk diet. It's eaten raw by the Uruks, who swear by it as a means to increase bloodlust and maintain a killing frenzy.
Harvested when it is at its most putrid, Orchamarth is also one of the primary ingredients in both the horrid-tasting Orc-draught and Orc grog.
Morgai Flies can often be seen hovering near these plants; they are, one supposes, the primary means by which this plant is pollinated. Other animals and races give the Orchamarth a wide berth.
- Orchamarth is likely Sindarin for "Orc doom" (from orch = "orc, goblin" and amarth = "fate, doom").
