The orbiflor developed a spherical structure to store water, guaranteeing its survival in the desert and rocky places, beyond a deeper root structure. From this sphere grows many thin floral axles, with an extremity similar to a needle, which help keep the herbivores away. This sphere corresponds to the fruit such that, when mature, they are untied from the plant and are capable of rolling. During this course, it breaks away and frees innumerable small seeds that will germinate in adequate soil conditions. After some time, it develops a new sphere.
