If a Krynoid did not find a host, it could also take root in the ground. ([[AUDIO]]: ''[[The Root of All Evil (audio story)|The Root of All Evil]]'')

The Krynoid took over its host's mind first. By the time the body had completely changed into vegetation, the host's mind had given way to the Krynoid sentience. Initially, the shock of this transformation kept the hybrid sedate, but once the Krynoid had taken over fully, it became mobile again. It seemed to have great strength. During this early period, the animal-Krynoid hybrid was desperate for warmth and protein, which it absorbed as it converted its host. As it ate, it grew larger. The [[Fourth Doctor]] theorised that amputating the area first infected might slow the rate of infection, but this was never put to the test. ([[TV]]: ''[[The Seeds of Doom (TV story)|The Seeds of Doom]]'') The [[Eighth Doctor]] later confirmed that this would not have achieved anything, and that short of amputating the entire infected limb (provided that the infection site actually was a limb) within not more than around twenty to thirty seconds of initial infection, there was no way of treating a victim short of euthanising them before they could fully transform.

They could grow incredibly quickly, easily outgrowing a house in a few hours, and within a day the Krynoid would reach its full size, becoming as large as [[St Paul's Cathedral]]. Finally, the Krynoid entered its germination period where it would release hundreds of pods, reproducing a thousand-fold until Krynoids covered the entire planet.
