It's hard to say without a more detailed description, but I'll venture a
couple of guesses.

Assuming the "tubular arms" are leaves, my best bet would be some
species of Eleocharis (hairgrass) or Isoetes (quillwort).  Both are
grass-like in appearance.  Some species of Eleocharis grow in
totem-pole fashion, one on top of the other.
