The indigo palm split from purple hornwarts. Due to the success of purple liverwarts, it grew up rather than around. It has grown palm-like leaves, but still grows in long interconnected roots. These can get broken and split every now and then, but whole forests will be connected by a single interconnected root system. Thus it reproduces only by budding off. Due to the fires of the purple bubbleshrub, it has grown a thicker bark, but it is not as resistant as bubbleshrub. This fire actually helps split up the long lines of interconnected roots. It is the tallest land plant to date and is too tall for the herbivorous plent to eat its leaves.
