The lake palm split from its ancestors to live only in the Flisch Lake area. It has grown taller to gather more sunlight than other nearby river shrubs, and its two extra bottom trunks have split into four longer trunks which significantly increases its chances of asexual reproduction. It has grown many more leaves which are also very useful when gathering sunlight, as well.
