I remember seeing a Time/Life book some years ago with a full page photograph of one of these vines. It was given the title "peperomia" but I've talked with other people who say it isn't. We find these hugging vines in the woods around Bosque Santa Lucia with some frequency but I guess what caught my attention about this one was the size of it. The leaves are several times the size of the others and it starts at the bottom of the tree and goes all the way to the top! And it's all in tact and green, as you see in the image. Notice the small bauhinia vine in the background. This plant was described in another post some weeks ago.
