The Strangler Fig's roots wrap around a Cypress tree in the Florida Everglades. Strangler Fig seedling plants often germinate high in the branches of another tree where the sticky seeds are deposited by birds. As the young stem grows upward, long slender aerial roots are extended downward and around the host tree until they reach the ground. After taking root in the ground, the root trunks increase slowly in size, encircling the host in a strangling embrace!
