Vinifera Monoliths are the results of large amount of Tiberium Vinifera melding together into a massive crystal. It releases Vinifera spore into the surrounding area.
Vinifera Monoliths began to appear as Vinifera fields spread further. If a large enough patch of Vinifera grows to maturity, the crystals will meld together into a massive blue crystal, roughly ten meters high. This crystal functions like a "blossom tree", but rather than spreading Tiberium Riparius, it spreads Tiberium Vinifera, albeit at a much slower pace.
The functions of the Vinifera Monolith remains the same in Tiberium Essence. However, it can no longer spread Tiberium beyond a designated radius around itself due to engine limitations.
