The duckweeds (genus Lemna) and related genera of the duckweed family (Lemnaceae) are the smallest flowering plants known. Individual plants consist of a single, flat oval leaf (technically a modified stem) no more than ¼ of an inch long that floats on the surface of still-moving ponds, lakes, and sloughs. The duckweed inflorescence, consisting of two microscopic staminate flowers and one tiny pistillate flower in a pouch-like sac, is almost never seen. Taxonomists believe the duckweed flowers are modified versions of the familiar leafy spathe and club-like spadix of the skunk cabbages, Jack-in-the-pulpit, calla lilies, and other members of the Arum family (Araceae), and indeed recent genetic studies suggest that duckweeds probably belong in an expanded version of the Arum family. Despite their diminutive size, the flowers of duckweeds can attract flies, mites, small spiders, and even bees that can spread the plant’s pollen after being attracted by sticky secretions from the stigma. Duckweeds can also be “contact pollinated” through the collision of adjacent floating stems that jars pollen loose and on to the receptive stigma.

However, sexual reproduction is the exception rather than the rule in duckweeds. More often, species propagate asexually by forming chains of new stems from vegetative buds. Some duckweed can also produce specialized buds called turions that break off the parental stem and sink to the bottom of a lake or pond to over-winter. In spring, the starch-filled turions rapidly begin to metabolize, causing the structure to float back to the surface and grow into a typical duckweed stem.
