Under Fächel (Rhipidium) refers to a particular inflorescence form of zymösen branch . The main axis of the inflorescence ends in a terminal flower, the prior leaf axil of the flower produces a new lateral axis. If there is only one adossed cover leaf , as is the case with most monocotyledons , a fan is created that corresponds to the monochasial branching type of the wrap . In contrast to the winding, the axes and flowers of the fan are arranged in one plane.
