d.Fern on a palm tree

Epiphytism is a form of mutualism in which one plant (epiphyte) lives on the surface of another. Epiphytes do not harm the host plant and are not parasites as they use water, air, and debris from the tree surface. This form of mutualism is observed in multiple tropical species including some ferns.
