Episode 5: Hotel Heliconia

Summary

Robert Lindsay narrates an insight into the heliconia plant, the jungle equivalent of a hotel, home to a variety of species which temporarily take up residence in its foliage. These creatures play a vital role in protecting and caring for the plant - hummingbirds help it to cross-pollinate and black bullet ants act as armed guards, repelling any unwanted visitors.
