On this lovely Friday I'll be sharing some photos of epiphyte and vine species that I enjoyed on a recent adventure in forest near Kawhia on the west coast of the North Island. It was very dry in the forest yet none of the epiphyte or vine species I came across were wilted. The orchid species were common on the ridges while the vines were abundant in the valleys. Please feel free to share your recent epiphyte/vine/mistletoe finds!
