Epiphytes ~ Birds Nest Tree Ferns in the rainforest



Epiphytes are plants that use another plant or object as a host upon which to grow ~ Their roots are not therefore in the soil so nutrients are derived from the air, the rain, and sometimes an accumulation of leaf debris.

These Birds Nest Ferns were seen at Natural Bridge

during a recent visit when showing an overseas visitor our local SE Queensland tourist sites 🙂
