Behind the scenes
First appearance


The dapophet (Na'vi name: paywll meaning "water plant") is an unusual plant that stores water in its tissues. The leaves to the top of the plant have a genetic substance inside that has healing properties when applied to skin. The Na'vi use it to soothe skin that has been burned as well as to speed the healing of cuts and other injuries. The leaves can be ground up and ingested to soothe upset stomachs and cure other intestinal ailments.

The fleshy, succulent leaves that grow along the stem are water-filled and very popular with the Na'vi as a portable hydration system. They will pull off leaves and carry them along to suck on for water. When a leaf is pulled off, a new one grows in its place. The leaves must be harvested carefully, however, because the top leaves occasionally eject spines in the direction of the stem when too many water-filled leaves are removed. There are a number of the plants around Site 26.
