The eka pointer has split from the ekamawan. It has evolved to be a deep-water plant, increasing its height. As the ekamawan did, the Pointer’s leaves fold round it’s flower as it grows towards the surface. Once there, the flower blooms. The plants of the Ovi Lake and Ovi River have evolved a close relationship with the bokabee. It relies on the bokabee to transport it’s seeds. As the bokabee swims by and knocks the flower (most likely when eating the Pointer’s leaves) the seeds stick to the plent’s skin with minute ridges in it’s surface (similar to how a gecko hangs onto glass surfaces). The seeds are then distributed, but can only go where the bokabee goes, so the plant cannot spread any further than the Ovi Lake and River. If a seed does not get spread by a bokabee, it falls into the water next to the adult plant. Although this means the two plants now have to share the same small space, it heightens the chance that a bokabee will get the seeds attached to it next year.
