"Lonefire Blossom" is unaffected by "Skill Drain", as long as it is Tributing itself. If you Tribute any other Plant, then the effect will be negated.
"Skill Drain" only negates a monster's effect if the monster is face-up on the field when the effect resolves. "Lonefire Blossom" Tributes itself to activate its effect, so under normal circumstances it is not face-up on the field when its effect is resolving, so it doesn't get negated.

That doesnt even make any sense since his effect is regarded to if it tributes itself or another monster. How can you activates its effect in the first place. unless the wording im looking for is tributing is not an effect but a cost and so "tribute 1 face-up.." is the cost " Special summon" is the actual effect itself. just tell me thats what the ruling is ment to be said and i can rest easy. i kno this isnt rocket science but dag nabbit it sure feels like that sometimes sabes que.

Skill Drain doesn't prevent activation of effects. (for something that prevents activations, read Jinzo). Falzar FZ 03:57, June 6, 2010 (UTC)

The tributing is a cost, skill drain only effects monster face up, lonefire tribute itself and is off the field in the grave, skill drain doesnt effect the grave so the plant monster is summoned

to make it a little clearer on skill drain. It doesn't stop the activation of the effect it stops the resoultion of the effect. so if an effect activates on the field but by the time it resolves that monster is in the graveyard than you can sneak around skill drain because skill drain cannot stop effects from the grave.
