Wordless Wednesday: Unknown Plant Growing on Tree Barks

Wordless Wednesday: Unknown Plant Growing on Tree Barks

I was on my way to my sister’s house today when I saw this growing on the barks of a tree. Does anyone know the name for this? Is it a kind of fern?

More Wordless Wednesday.

Happy Thanksgiving to all. Wishing goodness in all areas of your life.

    @ Sher, you can still recall our Primary school lessons? I must be getting old. But when you mentioned the name, it did look like Dragon Scales to me; they don’t really look good. I just found them kind of interesting.

    I see alot of these plants over here too..growing on tree branches. I am not so sure but I think they are known as “duit-duit” in the Malay language…literally meaning money…I remembered learning about these plants way back in school.

    You are most welcome to the award 🙂 …

    I am most intrigued by the plant … do the leaves feel slightly rubbery rather like a succulent? I shall have to check my plant books – I wonder if it flowers? Now I shan’t sleep I shall be wondering what on earth that plant is!

    @ My Bug Life, yes, it should be quite common in our part of the World. Like Sher, I can recall that we seemed to cover this in the school. I like the name in Malay. 🙂

    @ Sue, it captured my attention too when I was on my way to my sister’s house yesterday. It does look like ‘Dragon Scales’ as what one of the comments above mentioned.

    @ Polly, I did not touch the leaves so I am not sure how the leaves feel like when touched; the leaves did look smooth and shiny. The first thing that came across my mind is that it could be one type of ferns but I am not too sure also. The other thing that I am thinking is if the plant is harming the tree.

    Hey BK. Well, the dressing is made the food is ready to go in the oven and I am exhausted. I decided to be ahead of tomorrow by getting it all prepared today. I am ready! I actually put on my Christmas Chipmunks CD today. I sang and baked. Ha…

    I have no idea what this plant is? That is strange. The only thing we have growing on trees is moss. It is pretty though. I like anything that is a living plant.

    Have a Happy and blessed day.

    @ Tammy, seems like you are all ready for thanksgiving. I can almost smell the food from here. I thought I hear someone singing to the Chipmunks songs; so it was you. 😉

    You may be right about the plant. I did think it may be moss; at least it looks like the one I saw in the school text book when I was young. Wishing you a Happy and blessed day too. 🙂

    @ Bony and Jams, thanks for dropping by.

    @ Stan, I am not too sure too. It could be a moss? At least it looks like one from the text book I saw in the school when I was young.

    Totally agree with My Bug Life. It’s call “duit-duit” in Malay language. Which “duit” stands for “money”. It’s kinda look like coins of money aren’t they?

    Not sure what they are – but it looks really neat!

    Congrats on your awards, and thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog!

    @ Lyla, thank you. Now I know that this plant is called Duit Duit in Malaysia and Benalu in Indonesia. Thank you also for informing us that this plant is useful for herbal purposes.
