Ancestor:Descendants:

The cave lamp-palm split from its ancestor, the lamp-palm. It is very much like its ancestor except it has adapted to the cave environment. It gets its light from the cave mouth and any holes in the roof of the cave. Like its ancestor, the glowing slime, that was once only poison, is only excreted when the Lamp-Palm needs to reproduce and is releasing pollen. The light on the underside of the umbrella-leafs attract fauna to touch the plant and thus spread its sticky pollen.
