Tussock Ignis

Tussock Ignis - Yellow

Robust photosynthetic plants similar in appearance to clump grasses. They have a shallow but complex root structure, which requires a solid surface to produce structural stability. Clumps may form through tillering or wider dispersal through a variety of seeding mechanisms. Some species have adapted cellular structures containing high sugar concentrations to protect against freezing damage.

— In-Game Description

Tussock are a species of alien organism found on planets and moons with thin atmospheres across the galaxy. They can be sampled with the Genetic Sampler and scanned with the Short Range Composition Scanner. They have a clonal colony range of 200m.

Description[]

Tussocks (an English word!) are named after their grass-like appearance. They grow on plains or on flat patches between mountains.[1]
