All I can figure is that fog condenses on those CIDP.and that is enough for Coprosma repens I think it is,to grow as an epiphyte.

Stan, we see that here all the time, various coprosmas and other small native trees growing out of CIDP right up the trunks. I must post some pictures sometime.

Thanks Kev..you should try to make it to SF one day. September is the best month of the year to visit.


Ben,That epiphyte growth only is seen in the fog belt for the most part. Once you start to get away from it,CIDP are clean. Although I did see Brazilian pepper tree on some Date palms at the local golf course.
