Scientific and Common Name
Scientific Name: Terra KayaceaeCommon Name: Kaylo
The Kaylo plant lives in on Planet Kepler 22. The Kaylo plant lives in an area where it is is generally pretty hot. Rainfall only occurs about once a week for four months of the year. This usually adds up to about 15 inches year round. The average temperature is around 90 degrees year round. The Kaylo plant lives on a rocky terrain.
The spores on the Kaylo plant get dispersed by wind. The spores are placed all over the round base on the kaylo plant. Since there is a hot gell that coats the plant the spores actually sit on the top part of that gell. The wind then distributes the spores from the gell.
The Kaylo plant is similar to the cactus plant on earth because they both receive very little water and have adaptations to now store the water they receive to survive on it over long periods of time. They both have very long roots in order to collect the water and have adapted to have very large spots to store water.
