|Notice the woven trunk, which is actually one single trunk!|
I've seen some larger trees around here, that seem to have multiple parts of one large trunk, sometimes even with spaces between parts of them, but never anything like this.
This was clearly planned and somehow "convinced" to grow this way. But I can't image how it is possible.
If anyone reading this blog knows how this works, please tell me!
We found this tree downtown Playa del Carmen, at the main city bus transfer point. Next time I go by, I might just knock and ask. I'm very impressed by this strange but beautiful plant.
I uploaded the photo with higher resolution than normal so you can view it with more detail if you like.
