Drip tip leaves are specially adapted leaves that are commonly know to grow on plants in the rainforest. They have a curved, and bent down surface, which allows the rain to fall and tickle down the leaf. The rain then drops off, aiming at the plants roots, which then suck it in and use it as nutrients.
