utsrotasaḥ — they seek their subsistence upwards; tamaḥ-prāyāḥ — almost unconscious; antaḥ-sparśāḥ — slightly feeling within; viśeṣiṇaḥ — with varieties of manifestation.
All the immovable trees and plants seek their subsistence upwards. They are almost unconscious but have feelings of pain within. They are manifested in variegatedness.
