Someone i know – a Taurus, oddly enough – is having to cut a strangler vine off his tree. It is apparently a prick of a job as once they have latched on, the Strangler Vines do not want to let go, obviously. I am not a horticulturalist but the whole M.O. of the Strangler Vines reminds me of some people. They turn up (shat out by a passing bird, in this case) and plant themselves at the base of a tree with its shit together – deep roots for sustenance, decent position, branches in the sunlight and waving in the breeze etc, home to birds.
Then the Strangler Vine proceeds to grow around the tree, taking nourishment from its roots and eventually killing the host by rendering it weak and blocking all the sunlight. Aside from all the horrors unleashed by humanity on the Amazon forest, these Strangler Vines are a major threat to the trees there. About the only thing they have to offer is that they offer extra strength during storms. Some consider them ornamental. But of course, this is offset by the ‘killing the host’ bit.
So, do you know a Strangler Vine?
