The leafed airbulb split from its ancestor, the airbulbb. It now has tiny, leaf-like protrusions that stick out horizontally from the stem, largely increasing the photosynthesising area. It grows in such a way that the leaves are facing the east/west, to take advantage of the long sunrise and sunset of the mason year. Like its ancestor, the leafed airbulb is supported by a bulb that is filled with ammonia produced by nitroids during the day, to help evaporate the heat of the hot mason summer, and deflates during the dark and frigid mason night. At the end of the summer, the bulb will burst, releasing spores which will grow into new airbulbs in the spring. It has also grown ten times as large, reaching a total height of one centimeter.
