Family Isoetaceae

Clumps of Quillwort Isoetes plants look like small clumps of chives with long pointed leaves growing up and roots growing down from a rounded bulb-like base. Like ferns, clubmosses and horsetails, quillworts show an alternation of sexual and asexual generations and the plant you see growing is the sporophyte or asexual phase. [CH] {FG}
