The philodendron plant is light loving and thrives by establishing itself to the trunk and branches of trees and climb up towards the light. Philodendron lacerum grows as either an epiphyte (ep-a-FIT) or a hemiepiphytic species. An epiphyte (ep-a-FIT) is as species that grows upon the side of branches of a tree as a result of a seed being placed in the tree in the droppings of a bird, animal or bat.
Still at it.
Some of the hazards are the trees.
Dave harvesting the vines.
It's hard work.
The tall trees in the background are loaded with the philodendron.
The Philodendron vines reach the bottom of these trees some of which are 100 feet or more tall.
The above picture shows a close up of the Philodendron lacerum. As you can see it is very similar to the split leaf philodendron which is available in most garden centres and grows indoors in many homes.
Nearing the end of a good day of harvesting.
