This Special Plant is Scattered across locations throughout certain areas of the seasons. These plants create a flower that bulbs into a softball size fruit called a Bumpkin and these Bumpkins hold large seeds in a batch of 10 that are as soft as berries. When these seeds are extracted they can ether be used to replant in a soft patch of fertilizer or crushed to make a juicy nutritional meal with special properties of revitalizing and restoring energy after a nap much quicker.
The seeds have a toxin that calms the mind and if too many are eaten will knock them out cold snoozing like a kitten for hours. It would take a lot for them to wake up again until the toxin filters out in their system but their health is completely revitalized afterwards, it even boost immune systems when their sick or having a hard time going to bed. Some animals uses these plants to hibernate during the alternating seasons, thus releasing the seeds in different areas and spreading the plant across TUC.
These plants contain their glow due to the affects of drinking water that filter through glowing crystals, They also can drink through spirit streams and point into the direction of the nearest spirit pool by looking at their grass points as the hairs lead to the direction of high concentrations of special mineral water. Different colors of these filtered crystals also effect the color of the plant and within each colored plant provides a different flavor. TUC felines find these things to be a delicacy and make an excellent summer or winter drink. and the Toxic concentration can be countered by adding salt into the solution crushed mix. Making a tasty drink but at the cost of the healing properties it contains. Also Noted that these plants can grow with normal water but must be in an area surrounded by crystal light, for example a room willed with Red Crystals, it collects the red light and the effect of it becomes a red Globumpkin.
The seeds retain their glow process for a few days then loose their shine and begin to rot, the bulbs are bright enough to make nice lamps around the place and also make great household pottery plants but must be feed with mineral water that can be found at a stream running through crystals. They dont need sunlight for photosynthesis as they can self retain their own light through the glow they provide and circulate a continuous cycle. The brightness of the fruits also indicate their ripeness, but they can only get so bright until they start to fad away and shows signs of a rotting process, dropping its seeds below it and trying to bud a new flower or die from the season. The seeds go into a hibernation process if the area is cold. they only can grow under warm climates. they dont work in high temperature areas and much need a constant water source. Tradition cats can hold these but the plant must be sprayed with water to keep cool.
In the winter they will be growing closer to the Tradition Territory, in the summer they will grow near the New age. Rumor has it that when these plants are drinking through a spirit pool, they also retain some special spirit Properties. But that is just a theory ^^
