This plant grows almost exclusively in deeper waters, where its hand-like leaves have evolved to filter sediment from the environment. It is likely dependent on the excretions of fauna populating the waters above and around it.



  • Gabe's Feather was named after Valve Corporation president Gabe Newell due to the plant having two large fronds and an underdeveloped third frond. This is a reference to both the Half Life and Portal series' only having two entries and never receiving a third entry despite massive fan demand.[1]
  • The Gabe's Feather greatly resembles certain species of the real life sea pens.
