Description: In swamp forest. These fig trees produce prop-roots from the stems. These then grow new main trunks - and so the tree expands outwards to form a multi-stemmed tree covering a large area (see second photo). Canopy 15 m high. Young branches are light coloured and smooth, but the bark darkens and becomes knobbly and rough with age.

Description: This massive fig was split, most likely by lightning. The locals removed all the thin branches already and will use the thicker wood for carving souvenirs. More than 90% off the fruit showed a "hatching" hole. The last pic shows the browsing damage of livestock (predominantly goat)

Description: The plant-like form has balled itself around the inlet pipe of a metal trough. My guess is therefore that it may rely heavily on water. Thousands of bright red filaments. I honestly have no clue what it is. Although we have both fynbos & Renosterveld remnants, this was found nearer the house on a cultivated section of the farm.
