Strangler figs.


Hey, does anyone have any experience with any of the species under this label?
What was your host species? What was the parasitic species?
Any info or perspective will be appreciated, thanks in advance!

Strangler figs start off as epiphytes that end up encasing and killing the tree. They eventually root in the ground and are not true parasites, having no haustra. Amazing life history though.

They should be able to germinate in ordinary soil. Let us know if you get any seeds to germinate.
