Kaylo Plant

By: Megan McGahey

Scientific and Common Name

Scientific Name: Terra Kayaceae

Common Name: Kaylo

Adaptation Description

The Kaylo plant adapts to its environment by storing the little bit of water it receives and making it last for around a year. It gets most of it nutrition from the sun instead of water. It takes the heat that it receives from the sun and actually formulates a hot gell that coats the outside of the plant. This keeps the Kaylo plant safe from predators so it doesn't lose any of its water. The Kaylo plant also has very long roots meant to absorb as much water as possible when it does rain. It takes in large amounts of water at a time so when it does rain it can get all the nutrition. Then it is able to store it for long periods of time.

Environment Conditions

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 kaylo plant is asexual meaning it only has one parent. The offspring is almost identical to the parent. It reproduces by budding meaning the parent produces a bud which gets detached and develops into an offspring. Asexual reproduction does not require a lot of energy which is good because it does not have a lot of energy left to give off. Some would say that being asexual is a disadvantage because it does not have a lot of ability to adapt but this is not much of a problem since it the kaylo plant lives in a very stable weather condition.

Seed Dispersal

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.

Similar Plant

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.
