Ant Plant Native to Australia from North QLD. Photo's here.
 
Hi. Everyone... My mother has just come back from her holiday up in North QLD.... She went to Cairns for a holiday with her sister and toured other places as well. Mum came across this strange plant.. I also got a good shot of the moon to...Ill post photo's of her holiday in another week when they are sorted out.. There are two plants in this pot...

The plant is called an Ant Plant.

It grows on paper bark trees like an Orchid and ants like to live in the big bulb... The ants leave food inside the bulb for the plant to grow also the ants live inside the bulb.. The plant gets small white flowers on it... I thought i would share some photo's with you all.... Have you all seen this plant before

That's very interesting, Lyn! I never knew there was such a thing as a plant that needed the help of ants to have nourishment.
Thanks for sharing the pics, the one of the moon is amazing! :)

A very strange looking plant Lyn. I had not heard of it either. Beautiful shot of the moon.

How cool is that, a mutually beneficial partnership between the ant's and the plant. That is an awesome pic of the moon. Thank you for sharing Lyn....:)

Very interesting plant.
Do the ants ever come out of the bulb and roam around?
If so I don't think I'd want the plant in my house. :eek:

Wonderful photograph of the moon -- I love it!

Such unique looking plants and they look rather scary like some alien creature. I get goosebumps just looking at them!:eek:

I do like the photo of the moon. Tell you a secret, Lyn - I turn into a werewolf and howl ARRRRHOOOOO when there's a full moon!:D

Ant plant
 
WHAT a unique plant and a great moon shot, Lyn. Do not give JediKeet any attention. He just likes to try to scare people for fun. I bet he would think it was fun to have Holloween 365 days a year. He is a character to be told.

Blessings, J A:p
