Ancestor:Descendants:

The orange spore stalk replaced its ancestor and spread further and now grow almost everywhere in the Yokto biomes. They grew taller to gain more sunlight and to make it easier to spread 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 orange spore stalk is even more numerous and the spores can choke bigger animals than before. Their roots drink water preventing it from drying out and also to cool down the cell's in its body, the water will leave orange spore sprout through the stem, making it moist to the touch and photosynthesis more efficient.
