This flora species preserves most of the characteristic of its lineage, being able to reproduce by detached cells or by regeneration of broken parts. It evolved when some yenaptaks progressively started to regenerate entire plants based on the wings floating on the waters, and these developed into new plant, different from the originals, creating a new species.

The yumerhing split from a group of yenaptaks living in the waters of Ittiz region. It is very similar to its ancestor, but lost the ability to grow in the land. Like its ancestors, the yumerhing develops three wings connected to a central axis, from where it also produces three floating bags. These bags are filled with oxygen and help the plant to float when the bulb developing under starts to grow. In a way similar to yenaptaks, it will grow buds from the purple cells and these will cover most of the area on the wings; the same happens around the yellow bags and the bulb.

For growing the entire plant again, the bulb develops under it and holds most of the sugars produced by the plant. However, there are no visible vesicles outside, since all those compounds are stored only inside the bulb and help the plant to regenerate. While the wings seem to have a limited size, the bulb always grows and stores a large amount of those compounds, becoming a bulky mass after some time. In this way, even being supported by the floating bags, the plant will be pulled down by the mass under it and, in similar way of the ancestors, will detach that part and remain only with the aerial part. When it is about to sink, those buds growing on the wings and producing yellow sickle shaped cells will release all them and allow the plant to reproduce.

Detached, the aerial part will return to surface and restart the cycle, synthesizing new compounds and storing these in a new bulb, which will grow and detach after some time. The yellow sickle cells are easily carried by the winds, being spread to several locations, being also able to grow into entire yumerhings, due to its regenerative properties. These cells are produced in a huge amount during the entire life of the yumerhing, but only some will be able to reach the size of the mother plant, since they can be an easy target to herbivores when in small size (in case of eating the entire plant).

The bulb, after it detaches and sinks to the bottom, will also be able to grow a new plant. Most of those sugary compounds stored into it will be used to help it to regenerate. The new plant, growing on the bulb, initially will act in the opposite way and will consume those sugars synthesized during the photosynthesis, reducing the size of the bulb while it grows. After some time, new wings and bags will start to grow, storing oxygen and pushing the plant to surface. When reaching the surface, these plants will keep part of the bulb and will develop in the same way of those growing on surface.

Readily adapted to the aquatic environment, the yumerhing spread to the whole coast of Wright, being also found in Ninth Bay and in the wetlands of the continent.


Rhodix: "I was playing with words to create the name; half of the letters were cut out to make it easy to read. From the basic concept, it means something like “body and soul in the sea”, due to what happens while it reproduces (body sinks, soul arises)."
