      Soil can either be left on the roots of harvested material or removed. For ease in transport, soil may be washed gently from roots. The roots should always remain moist or in water until planted. Clip the leaves and stem from 15 to 25 cm (6 to 10 inches). This allows the plant to allocate more energy into root production.

The cattail plant is often used at the edges of bodies of water to help stabilize the shoreline. If you plan to stock your pond, the cattail plant can provide concealment and protection for smaller fish.

The cattail is also habitat for grubs that fish eat. Waterfowl and some songbirds also like to nest in the tall cattail :// Cattails are wetland plants with a unique flowering spike, flat blade like leaves that reach heights from 3 to 10 feet.

Cattails are one of the most common plants in large marshes and on the edge of ponds. Two species of cattails are most common in US: broad leaved cattail (T.

latifolia) and narrow leaf cattail (T. angustifolia). Under the right conditions, cattails can grow and spread While hundreds of edible plant species exist in Alaska, there are some commonly known varieties that you can easily remember.

For instance, cattails grow in wetlands and swampy areas. You can eat the telltale brown stalk, along with the roots and leaves. For a sweet treat, a number of berry species grow throughout the  › HowStuffWorks › Adventure › Survival › Wilderness Survival. Ecologically, cattails tend to invade native plant communities when hydrology, salinity, or fertility changes.

In this case they out compete native species, often becoming monotypic stands of dense cattails. Maintaining water flows into the wetland, reducing nutrient input and maintaining salinity in   stands can limit biodiversity in wetlands, decrease recreation opportunities, and impede water movement.

With sedimentation or changes in hydrology, shallow wetlands, ponds, and slow-moving streams may become vulnerable to cattail monocultures that eliminate open water. Cattails are emergent perennials that can grow to 10 ft tall. The stems are areas/wr_T/ Cattails can be a food source with high nutritional value.

You can check these by examining remaining native plant communities and the types of soils they grow in. Generally, moister, less free-draining soils suit tall, structured, lush plant communities, /   Cattails are tall, grass-like plants that grow close to water.

They can be found near rivers, lakes and streams, or even in roadside ditches where water often accumulates. Cattails are best recognized for their long, furry shaft that tops the plant stem.
