Typha capensis (Love Reed)

Root, Finely Shredded from South Africa (SKU 0962)

Finely shredded roots of Love Reed, from Africa. 15 gram comes in a PET plastic pot.



Typha, Typhaceae (Reedmace family). The leaves are alternate and mostly basal on a simple, jointless stem that bears the flowering spikes. The plants are monoecious, with unisexual flowers that develop in dense racemes. The numerous male flowers form a narrow spike at the top of the vertical stem. Each male (staminate) flower is reduced to a pair of stamens and hairs, and withers once thepollen is shed. Large numbers of tiny female flowers form a dense, sausage-shaped spike on the stem below the male spike. In larger species this can be up to 30 cm long and 1 to 4 cm thick. The seeds are minute, 0.2 mm long, and attached to fine hairs. When ripe, the heads disintegrate into a cottony fluff from which the seeds disperse by wind.
