As you come closer to the falls you will see a lot of Ti leaf on the left. Ti grows mostly at the edges of the woods. The ti plant is part of the lily family can grow three to six feet high. In Hawai'i people enjoy using the ti leaf to wrap food such as pork and cook it. Other uses of the ti leaf in Hawai'i are to make leis, hula skirts and were used for other clothing as well.
