this is a magical tree in front of my orchid mentor's house...it has all the fun things you spotted and a huge monster, several types of fern on the base and maybe 45 orchids.....this is just one tree in her front yard!!!

her Royal Poinciana has a few awesome plants and HOSE of a vanilla that i expect to see flower soon as it has reached the top of the main trunk.

there is some sort of a staghorn fern growing out of the cruck in the tree too


not entirely sure what kind of tilly this clump is but it had been blown out of a live oak

appears to replicate by pups so i am going to soak it and cut a section off and then re seed it around the neighborhood into three or four liveoaks

this was not from that walk but still in the neighborhood...
this is a banyan tree (they rule) and i assumethat 10-20 years ago someone just thought they were funny and tied a knot from the root strands....over time the strands thicken and become stilt-like supports, almost like a flying buttress, and this was the result...amazing

my daughter climbing on it for persepective

it had rained earlier in the day and the trees were heavy with water....when it got windy this was the result...magical (click the pic to see the video(4 seconds)
