Ancestor:Descendants:

The tallstalk split from its ancestor, the orange spore stalk in Yokto taiga. It is almost identical to its ancestor except it is twice as tall. In competing for light it grows twice as fast as its ancestor can.

Their spores which are still spread by the wind and are still kept inside a chamber placed on top of its stalk which is opened once the chamber is filled with spores. The spores can form thick orange clouds able to choke small animals like its ancestor before it, only, the tallstalk is even more numerous and the spores can choke bigger animals.

Their roots drink water preventing it from drying out and also to cool down the cell's in its body, the water will leave the tallstalk through the stem, making it moist to the touch and photosynthesis more efficient. It also has a special adaptation it can keep growing even in the winter and ill peak just above the snow most of the time.
