Psilotum nudum / Matsubaran マツバラン

The plant bodies lack roots and leaves; the whole being stems above the ground and rhizomes underground. The stems halfway upward potions repeat bifurcation at times, facing upwards, and those branches have ridges with sparse protuberances. Spores come in sporangium ripening yellow. Underground stems have some rhizoids instead of roots
