  • Spawned by trading a Distilled Water to the ??? at J-10.
  • The ??? will only take another Distilled Water every 50 minutes real time. Trades are affected by other players trading distilled water shortly before you, zoning does not reset this.
  • When it has progressed from trading a Distilled Water, it will give the message, "The sprout is looking better." It can take many trades before the NM spawns.
  • It seems to take at least 3 proper trades to spawn, sometimes more.
  • When a trade is done and the message, "A repulsive creature emerges from the ground!" appears, the NM will spawn, automatically engage to whoever spawned it.
  • Around 950HP
  • Easily solo'd by a 19 BLU/WHM.

Historical Background

In Aboriginal Australian mythology, it is a small red man with a giant head and octopus-like tentacles with suckers for fingers. It was a vampire and would jump on top of people sitting beneath fig trees (I guess this is where the Sapling link comes in). After consuming its victims, it would regurgitate them up alive, albeit a little bit shorter. If Yara Ma Yha Who would attack the same person repeatedly, the person will continually be regurgitated each time, getting a little bit smaller and a little bit redder until they became a Yara Ma Yha Who themselves.
