Sure its common..but this big isnt. A local plant.
Cool! What is it that looks like a hose going around and around the trunk?
Where is local to you, Stan of H? Humbolt?
Those are the roots-in the wilds of southern Brazil they usually lean on trees as support when they get tall.
H-is for Hayward,about 20 miles even from Oakland ,SF,and San Jose. The heart of the bay as the city slogan goes.
The roots are gnarly, they snaked all over my driveway. The plant is surprisingly hardy, I never even had any leaf damage in Zone 9 'freezes'.
That is a "monstero" philo. I have one, too, but not as big as that puppy. The air roots are what is wrapped around the trunk. LOVE it.
