Creepers grow extremely fast; if kept properly maintained and watered they will reach full size within a few days of sprouting and grow their pods about a week after. Creepers do not move as much when they are growing and tend to stay in one general area until fully mature, though if the area is devoid of required nutrients, it will set off to find a more suitable place to stay until fully grown.

Magi have debated for years as to whether creepers are plant or animal, to no avail. Many believe they are creatures and collect them as pets; others keep them only for the glowing pods that grow from them, as these are highly sought after by potion makers. The glowing pods regrow after each harvest, though more slowly each time. Creepers use their roots to move along, digging them into the ground every so often to gather nutrients and to anchor themselves down from being blown away by strong winds. If left outside in the elements once winter arrives, creepers will drop their caps and their roots will burrow into the earth to lie dormant, regrowing in the spring. Creepers will last year-round, however, if kept in a greenhouse. While the caps of the creepers are poisonous to humans if eaten, there are some creatures that are immune and will try to make a quick snack of the creeper, though they have to catch it first. While they are slow-moving most of the time, they can move quite fast if threatened.
