Living on Water!

Yes, the above water plants are floating on a lake in Chachagua and living on the nutrients they gain from the water as do the plants below call “air plants” that live on the nutrients from both the tree (or vine in this case) and the water in the very humid air of a rainforest. A gentle reminder for us to drink our 8 glasses of water a day! 🙂

Air plants living on nutrients from the tree and the water in the air.
Mangrove and other tree roots provide a safe place for newborn fish.
Like the feature photo at top, these water plants also provide beautiful flowers at times.
At one end of this particular lake (there are several lakes here) the water plants completely cover the water.
