The strumm split from the humm in BigL Beach. It has developed a more rigid structure and the flower has completely changed into 'strings'. The myriad threads of the humm have fused together in the strumm to form a number of thicker strings. The number of strings varies from plant to plant. These strings vibrate when the wind blows past them and make melodious sound. This protects the plant from consumption like its ancestor, but not by scaring herbivores away. Instead, it makes such a nice sound that herbivores don't want to eat it unless they are very hungry. The strumm has become taller than the humm to better catch the wind. Its leaves have also become larger.
