Lattuce gets its name from its beautiful radial symmetry. When the plant was first encountered the radial roots of many lattuce plants lay across one another thickly in a lattice formation.
Physiology and ecology
Lattuce is a root plant which emits from a central seed-pod much like a snowflake. The roots stabilize the plant within the orbit and to search out packets of ice, carbon, and minerals.
Life Cycle and reproduction
At the tip of every root stem a seed pod grow. When it is fully matured and oriented toward space the pod is ejected to seed a new area of the ring.
Diet and trophics
Lattuce is a photosynthic autotroph
History and background
The origins of lattuce are unknown. It is believed to be a genetic manipulation of naturally occurring plant life native to the world below. Although recent work by xeno-geneticists have found similarity to other ecosystems which has led to theories it may be a hybrid instigated during the Rule of Man to provide food sources for future colonies.
The largest lattuce ever found is thought to be over 900 years old and measured 3 kilometers in diameter. It is now under a preservation order.
