Hi Marek
 
Not only are the duckweeds true aroids but they are not even closely related to the other floating aroid, Pistia, but rather to the likes of Anthurium and Pothos, i.e., they are bisexually flowered.
 
One of the most interesting things is that the duckweed subfamily (Lemnoideae) seem be an old lineage with fossil evidence of at least one extinct genus, Limnobiophyllum, from a now-extinct tribe.

Hello,
 
I heard they are now in Araceae. Hard to accept this.

Another question:

What is the latest on the duckweeds? Are they Araceae?

Thanks again.
