Towering Bamboo



The general enormity of every plant in El Yunque rain forest was incredibly intriguing. I have seen many of the plant species in scaled down form, houseplants or at the conservatory. Never did I dream how huge everything would be in the rain forest habitat. A single leaf on a plant was longer than I am tall, a bamboo trunk was bigger around than my hand could grasp, and the fern blades were wider than my wrist.
