Echo-root

Are you lost? Hungry? Found early by settlers to the Eastern continent during the 6th age, and a staple of natives to the area, Echo-root is known by its purple leaves - that are very juicy but waxy, and taste of cooked meat.

Basic Information

Biological Traits

Grows to 50cm tall, with big thick waxy leaves. The plant is water guzzling, and attracts the Eltan beetle, which tends to strip attempts at mass producing crops by devouring the root system.

Genetics and Reproduction

Large flowers that smell of a rich spicy/chocolately scent. These develop into small stony fruit. In richer soils, the plant also sends out runners which develop into sister plants.

Additional Information

Uses, Products & Exploitation

The leaves are commonly used in baskets or as a food source.

Geographic Origin and Distribution

Warm, wet climates, low altitudes, low sun.

Symbiotic and Parasitic organisms

Many frogs nestle in their wells, for the pools of moisture that tend to sit there. In return the frogs tend to tend to the larger insects that prey on their leaves.
