Epiphytes

Many homeowners get worried when they see an odd plant clinging to the side of their tree, but the fear is often unwarranted. These usually turn out to be epiphytes, plants that requires another plant as a support, but don't take anything from the host. Many of these interesting plants are rare, and some are even endangered.
