What is this? It’s 3’ diameter ball with ferny things growing out of it. The ball looks like part of the plant, not just a container. It’s sitting on a drainage grate that’s suspended by the neighboring trees.

Toonces drives a Ranger . . . . just not very well.
A guess would be that it's a type of staghorn fern.

It doesn't look like it would be a comfortable swing, but it might be good for target practice since it will move around when you hit it...

you can get plant identifier apps for your phone, I have plant snap and another one. take a pic of the leaf, submit and it usually does fairly well at pulling up the plant

Keep your mind like an umbrella, it only works if its open... Continually learning.

I have seek for a phone app. Works ok. A book to reference would be better. It doesn’t need batteries or a signal to work.

I think RobbieD has it.

When I saw the subject line I thought you were asking about a manufacturing plant, not a plant plant.

That’s just a funky thing. Are there any other plants out there that are self contained and don’t need to be planted? I think orchids are like that.

There are two trucks. Both are sorted. Probably selling the '99.
Or ask at local Extension service, often they guys are profs at colleges and know all this stuff.
