Timelapse footage of a rainforest tree festooned with flowering epiphytic bromeliad plants. Epiphtyes are plants that grow on other plants, but they are not parasitic, only using them for support. They derive all their moisture from the humid air and frequent rain. Filmed in montane rainforest (cloudforest) on the western slopes of the Andes near Mindo, Ecuador.
