Frutexa Flabellum

Frutexa Flabellum

Robust woody plants with deep rooting structures to gather liquids and hold themselves in place where the ground may be unstable. They are photosynthetic organisms with specialised photoreceptors that work even in low light conditions. As such they are highly successful, and are widespread and diverse in nature. Their small leaf structures protect them against extremely low temperatures and liquid loss in higher temperatures.

— In-Game Description

Frutexa are a species of alien organism found on planets and moons with thin atmospheres across the galaxy. Frutexa are also called shrubs. They can be sampled with the Genetic Sampler and scanned with the Short Range Composition Scanner. They have a clonal colony range of 150m.

Description[]

Frutexa are named after bushes, which they resemble. They appear on plains and on rockside in mountains and hilly areas. Flying low aids observation.[1]

Types[]

There are seven known types of Frutexa:

  • Frutexa Acus
  • Frutexa Collum
  • Frutexa Fera

Frutexa flabellum[]

Frutexa flabellum Green

CMDR Nozdus, Frutexa flabellum, Outotz KH-D d12-20, A 3 d

Description[]

A species of frutexa that appears as a bush of leaves with a similar texture to seaweed. Seeds are extended on long stalks and protected by a cage formation until ready to germinate.

Conditions of occurrence[]

  • Planets with thin Ammonia atmosphere
  • Rocky planets
  • Maximum gravity: 0.27

Frutexa flammasis[]

Frutexa Flammasis - Green

Frutexa Flammasis - Green

Description[]

A frutexa species that gives the appearance of flames, with vivid upright fronds extended from multiple stalks. The fronds are dotted with disc-sha ped spores that are distributed by the wind.

Conditions of occurrence[]
