	I just spoke to Sabina and Abelardo at IDIEZ. They saw the picture of the plant, pachtli, and identify it as “heno” (the word they use in Nahuatl), a kind of vine that grows on trees in the Huasteca. It is used as a base upon which the figurines of the “nacimientos” are placed at Christmas, and also as a base for roosting hens.
