Spotted on the campus of the University of Hawaii Manoa Campus on Oahu.
Ficus benghalensis, the Indian Banyan, is a large and extensive growing tree of the Indian subcontinent. Ficus benghalensis produces propagating roots which grow downwards as aerial roots. Once these roots reach the ground, they grow into woody trunks that can become indistinguishable from the main trunk.
