    Socratea exorrhiza, one of the more bizarre members of the Kingdon Plantae (and there are plenty of those).

    I got to see a few of those last year on a trip to Nicaragua. Lots of interesting stuff down there. Strangler Figs, for instance.

    It’s almost like it forgot that it could grow roots from the base :)

    Nah, it just decided that growing roots from the base was for suckahs. It’s like baggy pants — all the cool trees are into visible roots now.
