Reproduction Asexual (spores)


The lyrostira split from the flufflestalk, being able to reach double the stature of its ancestor. The leaves are rounded and longer, forming canoe-like structures around the stem, where water can be imprisoned into small pools. The top part evolved a type of chamber, keeping the immature coiled spore rods protected. When mature, they will be straight up and allow the spores be airborne. Each rod contains numerous star-like structures, each one holding five spores. Initially closed, these will open and detach from the rod, letting the wind carry these to distant places. Later, spores will use these stars as a first settling place, giving them some nutrients to start the germination.
