Neptune: Neptune rules plants which are used as intoxicants, such as Cannabis sativa, the coca leaves from which cokaine is produced, the opium poppy, devil's weed, peyote, and psilocybin mushrooms. In this area neptune may also exert some influence over the coffee bean and tobacco. Neptune has corulership with the moon over many herbs and plants which possess occult properties, as well as the beautiful orchid.

Pluto: None to this writer's knowledge, except for species which have developed and may yet develop as the result of genetic mutation caused by radioactive fallout. According to greek mythology, Hades is especially fond of the narcissus and the cyprus tree.
