I dot not expect this kind of propagation.

   This slim member of the Isoetaceae family was given this name by Alexander Karl Heinrich Braun in 1849. It is found in Spain, France and Italy and even down in Algeria, growing in ponds and sometimes swamps with some to lots of sun. The hollow leaves grow to ten or even 30 centimetres.

The genera name means 'all the same year round'. The species name mean 'wrapped'.
