Guaraná Plant

This is a young guaraná plant located just back of the museum area. It is from a seed I collected from an older plant, which can be seen in the forest near the old roundhouse. Notice the termite mound in the background. The termites have built their nest around the stump of a tree that was cut some four years ago. When the wood is completely eaten up, they will move on to another meal.
