英雄與霸王

虯髯客

Hero and Overlord

-  Qiu Ranke, The Bearded Warrior
細葉榕有另一個名字-霸王樹,來源於它的樹冠垂下無數氣根,落地後成為支柱,進而支撐廣闊的樹冠,樹的位置不停的擴散,最終"獨木可以成林".在未為為霸王前,一個必經階段便是虯髯客了.

細葉榕在香港是常見樹木,但以往的審美標準多氣根的"虯髯"狀並不受人喜愛,真的要找一棵擁有無數氣根的細葉榕便要找一找.

Chinese Banyan (Ficus microcarpa) has another name – “Overlord tree”.  It gets the name because of its numerous aerial roots, hanging down from the crown, fall to the ground and become trunks supporting the broad crown.  The tree goes on spreading and eventually “a tree becomes a forest”.  Before being an overlord, it is prerequisite to be the “bearded warrior”.

Chinese Banyan is common in Hong Kong.  However, according to aesthetic standards in the past, a “bearded warrior” with too many aerial roots was not too appealing.  Thus, nowadays it really takes some effort to find a Chinese Banyan with thick aerial roots.
