Researchers say the plant was unexpectedly discovered during genetic testing, "at first we thought it was a marine grass, but it was only later discovered that it was a 4,600-year-old plant that grew from a single seed. It grew to a length of 180 km." >

Biologists have found that this type of plant does not produce much flowering or seed formation, saying that "it is even more surprising that it has grown in the face of climate change for thousands of years." Biologists are baffled by the fact that a single plant has grown to about 200 square kilometers in the Australian Ocean.
