One of the races in my book, called the Specters, are a plantlike race. The veins in their faces are distinguished and look like vines and their skin is a very pale green. The gods created a special tree where the Specters stemmed out from through the trunk, but that was thousands of years ago. How could I tie in the tree to reproducing and having a baby? I thought maybe a male and female could go to one of those trees and touch the trunk. Vines could form from their hands and tie into the tree. The "ritual" could be somewhat like praying to the god of earth and the goddess of fertility. If their "wish" or prayer" is granted or answered, the baby will form inside the tree and will stem out of the tree and cut it's way out when it will be born. What do you think of this?
