Viviparous plant of Juncus articulatus

This photo is taken in la Ribera d’Ebre (T), Catalunya.

Viviparous plants produce seeds that germinate before they detach from the parent. In many mangroves, for instance, the seedling germinates and grows under its own energy while still attached to its parent before dropping into the water in order to transport away. In some trees, like Jackfruit, the seeds can be found already germinated while the fruit goes overripe; this condition cannot be said as vivipary since the moist and humid conditions provided by the fruit mimics a wet soil that encourages germination. However, the seeds can germinate under soil too.

Hi Ferran,
We do have this species in the north part of Israel(Golan heights) but it is relatively rare.

The pic is well composed and shows great lighting of the subject. The DOF, the dark OOF BG and sharpness are well done.
