I was trying to mimic plant root-growth behavior. It all starts with one root, which then has a chance to get offspring (𝟢 to 𝟦). If it gets offspring, the offspring also gets a chance for more offspring. To reduce lag there is a maximum to the currently growing roots (𝟣𝟢𝟢). Due to the random behavior, it is possible for the plant to die at the start or — theoretically — in an advanced state.
