The Tornado Plates is an aquatic flora species found in the Tree Spires and near the border with the Thermal Spires.


The Tornado Plates appears as in the shape of a Tornado, as the name indicates. strands spiral up the side around the stem, bending over slightly to the left, which widens out at the top into a larger base. Sitting atop this base is a large flower-like structure.

Below the spiral appears to be a net-like structure, likely acting as the main structure of the plant. The spiral strands appear to be held in place by this structure.
