The purple bubbleweed is the next generation of testudohexapodia acta. To compete with the other land plants it produces a bubble seed by separating out the hydrogen from water. These bubbles float off when they are mature to a new spot to grow. Sadly, this plant is highly vulnerable to lighting and forest fires because of its hydrogen seeds. During these times, the blaze is amazing with plants exploding everywhere in huge fire balls. Luckily enough, some seeds float far enough away to survive, and the roots tend to grow back even after their stems explode off.
