The plant has an un-usual type of natural attack. Whenever the plant strikes a creature using its natural vegetal weapons, splinters break off from the plant and begin to burrow into the victim. The splinters do one plus the power score modifier damage per round until they are physically pulled out, requiring one round. There is no limit to the number of splinters that the plant can inflict on a single target.
