Often found in large numbers, these diminutive plants can pack quite a wallop, especially when they assist each other to bring down larger prey. With their quick attacks and ability to put whole parties of attackers asleep, they are not to be taken lightly, despite their size. They can be found all over Vana'diel, although not surprisingly are most often found in outdoor, wooded areas.

They are often found surrounding - and will come to the assistance of - their larger treant brethren. In fact these saplings are nothing more than immature treants themselves.

Being fairly typical plants, when killed they drop a variety of seeds, including Grain Seeds, Herb Seeds and Vegetable Seeds.
