You cause a message, no more than twenty-five words long, to travel through the earth, spoken from one plants' roots to the next, until it arrives at its destination.
    The message is mentally delivered to the creature who holds the specially prepared material component. The recipient must be in contact with the earth and within 60 feet of vegetation to receive the message. If the component is not held, the creature holding it is not in contact with the earth, or the creature is out of range from nearest vegetation, then the message waits in the earth until such a time that it can be delivered or the spell duration ends.
    Material Component: Two walnuts, each containing a tiny scroll of blank parchment. The spellcaster buries his walnut in the earth upon casting the spell and the message is delivered to the bearer of the other walnut.
