The xi'gind is an unintelligent creature that shares more DNA with terrestrial flora than fauna. A single xi bulb, given the proper care and environment, can sprout a newborn xi'gind within a matter of weeks. Although the xi'gind head then grows vertically out of the soil, xi'ginds also accelerate root-like growth of fleshy appendages that can grow from the ground over a hundred yards away. It is currently unknown how the xi'gind controls these remote appendages, as they don't seem to share a physical connection with the head.
