As you begin taking a closer look at the plant containers, Dr. Finch starts investigating the wall mounted panel further down the hall.

"Hmmm... hm hm hm. It appears as though there are more of these containment vessels throughout the facility..." Dr. Finch touches a few buttons on the screen. "They can be programmed for different types of flora, even food... though these in the hall are likely just for show. Wait..."

Dr. Finch taps another button. "They are pulling double duty as a source of oxygen. I'm not too sure where they're being fed carbon dioxide from, but there's diagnostics here for the oxygen distribution network. It looks... as though without the plants being regulated manually, they began outgrowing their vessels. All of these yellow daisies are a byproduct of... a sort of system error. The computer didn't know what else to grow under the current situation, so it defaulted to everything being yellow daisies."

"Why would tha place need its own air supply?," Caius asks. "This bunker sealed off or somethin'?"

Dr. Finch adjusts his mask a bit. "Could be any number of reasons. Bunker A--as we know it--was in a frigid climate, yes? Yes. This bunker may well be higher up in the mountains, where the air is thinner. Alternatively, we could be buried deep underground, or or or... even underwater. The generator in Bunker A was providing power to other bunkers in the network, including this one if I had to speculate--this bunker is likely providing oxygen to the other bunkers. This bunker may not be using the air itself, only acting as a distributor."

You pick a few daisies. You suspect the flowers have probably been modified in some way, maybe to provide more oxygen or grow faster as per the bunker's needs. Dr. Finch is distracted with the logistics of the bunker for now, but he'll probably want to take a closer look at the actual flowers later.

H-how did Dr. Finch adjust his glasses behind his mask XD

It does look like it's safe to remove the masks at this point? Feel free to disagree, peeps. -v-)~

So... super natural oxygen tanks, that sounds nice. So we can always pop in here for a super fresh breath of air. :D

(Daisies~ we can make daisy-chains~ <3)

*puts a daisy in Jane's hair*

Let's check out the middle door~~

Third daisy in the hair. Maybe even make a head-wreath.

Switch out daisies with saffron and we've got ourselves a nice little retirement plan, once we're no longer fighting hiveminds.

Or we could pump-and-dump tulips :3

Oh, nice. Seems like we can make our own greens and whatnot once we figure out how to work the tubes. Probably. In any case, let's check out the middle room and see if there's anything notable there, or just confirm that there's more tubes.

Also, Broomie and I are about to try and finish Cuphead.

So are these tubes related to whatever the proto-Jurys were working on? They looks similar...

Aren't daisys white?

Btw, I found this article on Daisy's that might help with how we can use it if it's not to mutated

Daisies are a family, and a bunch of them are yellow petaled.
