Question Asked: No question asked - none needed. Here are Amaury's comments:

This is part of a plant gropwing on a fence (and anywhere else it can get) that I found today. I know this is PI for sure; the photo is proof. The youngest set of leaves is reddish, and lower on the vine are roots that have started to cling onto the fence. Interesting leaf shapes (not visible in the picure).

Answer: Hi Amaury -

Thank you for an excellent picture. The clarity of the aerial rootlets which allow the plant to cling / climb is excellent. For those wondering about what a young pi vine looks like - this is an excellent picture.
