These bizarre plants begin small, but with time can become massive problems. Spreading their roots deep and wide, an established Violent Violet can be very difficult to uproot, and left alone, can grow to gargantuan proportions.
Ninety percent of their body mass is their root system. The fine roots tend to cluster into a larger, coiled root, or arm. In places where the arms are exposed to sunlight or heat, the roots will sprout small, sweet-smelling leaves to act as a lure. Despite being coiled, the sensitive roots are not bound to the arm, and can become animate to snare, strangle and drag hapless or unwary creatures. Nestled in the base of the arms is a chitinous-plated bell, like a gaping maw, that the root uses to digest more organic materials. A Violent Violet who’s bell has been ruined will starve and die.
