So during some preparation for a feast my dad in law needed to go to the pulaka pit and harvest some big roots that had been growing for awhile.
Deciding which ones to harvest.

Fun for everyone!
This is what the harvested roots look like. The leaves of the plant look like a sweet potato leave but obviously much larger and the plant doesn’t vine it grows as a stalk. Especially when the plots of pulaka are in the forest and are competing for light, some of the stalks can reach 8-12′ in height which is really amazing.
