These plants are "epiplents" and had evolved from the violetgrass when some of its seeds, carried by wind, started to fix onto the roots of plant plents. These plents are used only as support, as the upplenite gets all the nutrients it needs from the air, absorbing humidity through its succulent leaves covered by small coats. When its berry matures, it explodes and the seeds are carried by wind until they find a support to fix. Moreover, they can generate new plants from their leaves, which detaches from the main plant.
