Pyrulea is an odd plane that Dyfed escorted Yawgmoth to in order to prove her abilities as a planeswalker to him. It is composed of a densely forested sphere around a central star; the plane's inhabitants live on the interior surface of the sphere. What's more, the size of the plantlife is particularly enlarged.
From J. Robert King's novel The Thran: "In every direction, a vast rain forest spread. Millennial trees trailed nets of vine and moss hundreds of feet downward to wet undergrowth. [...] North, south, east, and west, the landscape curved up and away into walls. They, in turn, joined to form a ceiling of sky. This was not merely a bowl of land but the inside of an enormous sphere. Despite the vast blue distances, the sky still showed the outline of trees, a living tapestry hanging overhead." According to this, the plane could be an example of a naturally occurring Dyson sphere.
Bright birds dart among the broad leaves, and strange orchids, with pink petals as vast as a hand and edged in brown, grow here. According to Dyfed, there are also intelligent creatures on this world.
In fact, in the cards representations of Pyrulea, several people are walking on gigantic leaves. These are resilient underfoot. Heavy steps do not bruise them, but release a sweet and spicy scent.
