Loojines are plants present in large numbers all over the Burning Desert; they are composed of a colored ball held inside a network of thin intertwined branches.

Some botanists think that the ball at its centre is actually the fruit of the loojine. However, recent research has revealed that these balls are only tanks used to store the sap. This part never comes off the plant and suffers no change through seasons other than its colour, allowing us to believe that it is indeed not a fruit. It contains a greenish liquid rich in water.

The loojine flowers are very small and scattered along the network of branches constituting the “cage” which turns green in autumn. Their pollen is brown.

The Fyros use them as a source of water by piercing the central ball to make the sap flow.

Some botanists suggest that they are related to the papalexis of the Lucenthead Hurst.
