Like many Rosharan plants, scalespray protects itself from highstorms through withdrawing its fronds into its trunk, which grows in a characteristic shape of overlapping scales. This trunk - which is where the scalespray's name probably comes from - is about the height of an adult human, with a crown of leaves reaching far higher. The particular shape could be used to give it sufficient flexibility to both pull in and withdraw all its delicate parts, as when withdrawn, it's noticeably bulkier. At the very top of its crown, scalespray grows a single cluster of fruit, each the size of a man's fist.
It has yet to be reviewed.
