In addition to this, all of the kralstalk's foliar crystals are capable of producing spore sacs. However, instead of containing gametes, they produce thick-coated spores that are impervious to drying, greatly increasing their lifespan. These spore sacs are filled to the brim with spores, and will burst during the wet season. Kralstalk populations will release their spores simultaneously in order to maximize the chances of two spores coming in contact with each other. These spores will then settle down and produce a mycelial root network, which will then produce the stalk using whatever nutrients it can gain from the surrounding detritus.
