Ancestor:Descendants:

The byocaca split from its ancestor and moved into the adjacent tropical coasts. It has taken its ancestor's buoyant fruits to the next level. Now the flora will grow its fruits very early in life, however they serve a different purpose; the fruits fill with air (supplied by photosynthesis) and keep the whole flora above the water; when the tide goes out it will just rest on the ground. However near the end of its life (about 6 months) the fruits will fill with tasty juice and seeds thus losing their buoyancy. The connection between the fruit and the rest of the flora weakens as well and the fruit will then come off easily; once the flora has lost its fruits it will be unable to rise to the surface and obtain free oxygen, and so drowns. It has a long semi-elastic stem (really more than an elongated extension of its roots) which keeps the organism in place in the ground when it is in the water, it can reach up to 1.18 m in water but is not always that high; its width is 40 cm wide. It still has the large root system of its ancestor which now serves as its anchor.
