Descendant of Ancestor of


The floating balloon evolved from the sea balloon. Unlike its ancestor which grows downwards, the Floating Balloon evolved to grow sideways on the water by floating on it. Its roots just hang into the water, absorbing water which it uses to perform photosynthesis. The floating balloon can now also be found floating on the Jujubee Ocean, because it doesn't need ground to grow in anymore. The waves and the wind just take it there as well as the balloons that it still uses to reproduce. It can now grow a lot bigger than its ancestor; a fully grown floating balloon plant is 10 meters long.
