The bubble herus split from the bubble vines as an alternative to catch more light. Its leaves have an ample surface, also being useful to hold rainwater. When old, the great and weighed leaves fall off and can glide for some meters, capable of generating new plants due to its capacity to produce roots when in contact with water. When the new plant is formed, it remains floating for part of the time, with small branches located on the long part of the leaf. If these successfully fix it to some surface, it starts to develop in the area and settling portions, prolongating its trunk and roots until they reach the ground. After this, it can start to climb again, making several turns around the palm's trunk.
