Ancestor:Descendants:

The herustalk split from the freestanding herus when a number of freestanding herus and seed bubbles were blown by a very strong wind to the edge of Krakow Temperate Forest. The freestanding herus that rooted there spread throughout Krakow Temperate Forest and evolved into the herustalk. The herustalk differs from its ancestor as it has six additional hydrogen bubbles attached to the top of the plant. These bubbles are not seeds and do not separate from the plant. This provides greater lift, allowing the plant to grow much taller. In response to this greater lift, the herustalk developed stronger roots which now anchor it firmly to the ground and provide more nutrients to aid the herustalk's growth. It still reproduces with hydrogen-filled seed bubbles, and any leaves that are separated from the herustalk will be carried off by the wind and can grow into a whole new plant.
