I was looking up words that rhyme with commiserate (not for any good reason) and found the word episcopate, which I don’t know the meaning of, so I looked it up.
Etiolate. transitive verb.
1 : to bleach and alter the natural development of (a green plant) by excluding sunlight.
2 : to make pale. to deprive of natural vigor. make feeble.
I also found this:
The development of seedlings in the dark is known as "skotomorphogenesis" and leads to etiolated seedlings.
So there you have it. If you already knew all that, sorry to waste your time.
