The Maze plant (Hydnophytum papuanum) forms a symbiotic relationship with ants.  Hollow, smooth-walled tunnels form within the caudex  provide ideal homes for Ants. The Ant colonies  provide nutrients to the plants by leaving wastes within the tunnels inside the caudex. This symbiosis allows the plants to effectively gather nutrients (via the ants) from a much larger area than the roots ever could cover.
