Many humans think of wheat as long and tall plants, golden and waving in the wind. Not Jhoutaioan Wheat. It comes flat and wrapped around coral. Golden arches of wheat for miles, it's a bit surreal.

Cultivation

Cultivation of Jhoutaioan Wheat requires a bed of Jhoutaioan Coral, which the Wheat will root into similar to how a moss plants onto a rock. It sucks up minerals from the microscopic organisms which live within the coral, and soaks up water from the fluctuating water table of Jhoutai.

The Plant grows in large flat bunches, unlike the taller wheats of Eden. Harvesting involves scraping the wheat plants from coral, processing the entire plant with roots included from the coral structure. Sculpted coral archways are the most common farming shape used to grow the wheat, as the plant with encompass the entire circumference of the structure.
