The sweetfruit pondroot split from its ancestor the temperate spade-leaf in the Huggs Rainforest and Huggs Temperate Forest. It has evolved a unique new lifestyle, they no longer grow on the ground and now grow in the small ponds of the lyrostira and tongueishot. From these ponds they gain their water and a few nutrients and sugars from the sweet waters. The bulb in their roots now sits deep inside the pond as some of the roots entangle the stem of the host plant while others drain the water and a few are used to feed on the saproutine. Their roots can now release enzymes that help them feed on the saproutine that grows on the trunk in order to gain the needed nutrients they no longer absorb from the soil. This makes the symbiosis between them and their hosts mutual as they protect them from this pestering parasite. They still spread their seeds using fruits. Each plant grows 5 fruits. The fruits are teal colored and are very sweet due to the sweetness of the water. Each fruit contains many seeds in small chamber which gives the fruit a bumpy look. In spring they shed their fruits.
