In Teleleli, Plant-Folk largely live near one or other of the city's two major rivers. This is because the soil there is more fertile. Plant-Folk must periodically place their feet in dirt, and draw sustenance from it, entering a state which is analagous to both sleeping and eating for humans. The soil near major rivers is more fertile, and therefore renders this state more satisfying for them.
Prominent Telelelene Plant-Folk include Bo Tanical, famous for her detailed studies of the anatomy of scientists, and Erol Lotus, one of the few outsiders to learn the language of the Groaners.
