|Ecological interactions among plants|
Hemiparasitic plants rely of other plants for their supply of water and inorganic nutrients, but they are green and thus are able to photosynthesize. They may either attach to the branches of their host, or to their roots. In the latter case, the parasitic relationship is not immediately visible in the field.
