Floris, generally, are incredibly huge creatures. Their heads are a pseudo flower with an eye in the middle. Rarely a floris may have multiple heads. They have long, thick bodies with prehensile, vine-like tails. Leaves often run down floris' spine but can have any placement. Floris walk on their roots and can feed into dirt at any time if it is available. Floris do not have mouths or ears.
Floris are deaf, and have very poor eyesight. To communicate, they stomp their feet or tail, in their own language. Floris may also release pheromones to communicate as they are very olfactory-based. These pheromones are inhaled through a stomata, which is a tiny pore found around their bodies.
Floris, in the beginning of their lives, begin as an immobile sprout. They are blind and can not leave the garden. They are looked after and protected by either parents or a whole community of floris. When it is ready, a juvenile will wiggle its way out of the garden and hop about on two ITS root feet. Juveniles are not yet blossomed and are still blind at this stage. At adulthood it will blossom, signalling sexual maturity, and grow its other appendages out, such as forelegs and tail. Floris, like most plants, are hermaphroditic.
Oftentimes, floris outside of their home planet will be seen covering their heads in one way or another because many species are allergic to their pollen.
Floris are gentle giants. They are incredibly peaceful, shy, and hate conflict. Communities of floris are often very tight knit and co-dependant. They are always taking care of and defending eachother from danger. If one is messed with, the whole family will jump to their defense.
There is not much to note about floris history. It was very uneventful given that floris are peaceful, slow moving people and did not document anything.
Parasitic: This subspecies grows on other floris and are often a huge pain for the host. These types are unable to sustain themselves without a host.
Carnivorous: This subspecies, as the name implies, eats other organisms. Carnivorous floris tend to eat insects, but are fully capable of eating other organisms such as small to medium mammals.
• Floris see in the UV spectrum of light.
• They love bees and enjoy their company.
