Biology

The slender naiad is eaten by waterfowl and provides shelter for aquatic insects and small fish (2). It can reproduce sexually through seeding as well as through vegetative reproduction (2). Flowering and fruiting occur from August to September; the male and female parts are found on the same plant but in separate flowers (5). Pollination occurs underwater as the plant is completely submerged, although floating fragments are often found (2).
