Lemnoideae Duckweeds, or water lens, are flowering aquatic plants which float on or just beneath the surface of still or slow-moving bodies of fresh water and wetlands. Also known as "bayroot", they arose from within the arum or aroid family (Araceae),[1] and therefore, often are classified as the subfamily Lemnoideae within the Araceae. Classifications created prior to the end of the twentieth century classify them as a separate family, Lemnaceae. These plants are very simple, lacking an obvious stem or leaves.

Inside Peek at O’Hare Airport’s Vertical Farm January 23, 2012 by Robin Plaskoff Horton Photo: Future Growing After traveling a lot for the majority of my career, airport delays are usually not something I get excited about.
