So how do the roots work Delonix? is it air or air and particles of dust?

Drc726:

Many large Ficus species (or banyan-type figs) in the wet tropics and subtropics have many aerial root (adventitious roots) which when touching the ground develops trunks. Here it takes a long time for the aerial roots to reach the ground because we don't have rain in summer...just the humidity.
