Split off from the Crystal Peridot, the Network Peridot spread out further, even into land previously barren of large flora. It found some of the ground very dry, restricting its reproductive method; however, it found a solution. The Network Peridot is named for an underground network of specialized reproductive roots connected with those of all others of their kind, allowing them to reproduce without necessarily having their spores distributed by water; their spores still spread further when it rains, helping with the genetic health of the population—especially out in the desert, where it will have few neighbors.

The Network Peridot is otherwise identical to its ancestor. It is shaped like a rupee, it can grow in clusters or blanket large swaths of land depending on the available nutrients, and it is capable of budding new individuals from its roots.
