Moss is a flowerless plant that produces spores in small capsules. The stem and leaves of moss is known as the gametophyte, while the stalk (ceta) and capsule make up the sporophyte. Mosses lack a vascular system which most plants use to transport water and nutrients, and therefore lack a true root system, instead attaching themselves to surfaces with a rhizoid. Clumps or carpets of moss are actually groups of individual plants clustered together.
