  Dragon Scales Fern

 

Vietnam

A tropical tree covered with the Dragon Scales Fern, a tropical epiphytic fern with the botanical name Pyrrosia piloselloides (fig.).

 

Though this plant grows on another tree, it is not parasitic on it, yet takes its energy directly from the sun through the process of photosynthesis.
