Vithuos or originally Vithu uos meant tree of life. It was originally used by the Tula to make curatives.
The Vithuos was native to the grasslands that the Tula called home and was found along the banks of rivers and streams. The plant is similar to terran bamboo, with a reddish brown trunk. The cavities in the tree a filled with fluid but form at closer intervals. The fluid produced in the cavities was used to form many of the medicinal compounds the Tula created.
The Vithuos is still used for some herbal remedies, and the wood from it is used widely for decorative features. The by products of the plant as also used as food items.
The segments of the Vithuos were also the base unit of measurement that the Tula used.
