Family: Vitaceae
Origin: Brazil
Vine or creeperSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliage

Attractive, tropical climber with string-like vines. The upper surface is brushed pale silver green with bright white weins while the underside is a pink to burgundy color. Great for the tropical terrarium, it likes to climb and scramble.

From Spring to Autumn keep soil moist using water at room temperature, but do not allow the plant to sit in water. Wait until the top centimetre has dried out before watering again. Over the cooler months during their potential rest period, water just enough to prevent the potting mix from drying out.

The Amazon Jungle Vine loves high humidity which will create luscious growth and healthy foliage.

It is not a begonia, but the medium sized lance shaped leaves have the bright colors of Rex Begonia leaves. The leaves are dark green with silver and purple blotches. It makes a gorgeous hanging basket. Thanks to its large, striking leaves and climbing growth, Cissus discolor has become a popular houseplant. The leaves and stems produce a natural secretion, tiny opaque dots, called cystolyths. Grow this Cissus in a hanging basket or let it climb up a trellis.

Cissus rhombifolia Ellen Danica

Cissus rhombifolia

Grape Ivy, Oak Leaf Ivy, Water Vine, Kangaroo Grape, Kangaroo Treebine
Family: Vitaceae
Origin: Tropical America
Vine or creeperShadeSemi-shadeModerate waterOrnamental foliage

The first and most common type was Cissus rhombifolia known as Grape Ivy since the foliage resembles grape leaves and it climbs with the aid of tendrils. Compound leaves with 3 leaflets; stems covered in soft brown hair; vine-like habit with tendrils that allow it to climb.

Ellen Danica, a sport with leaves resembling an oak leaf, was the next variety to enter the market. The loosely arranged leaflets and leaflet lobing give this cultivar a finer texture than the others.

One of the most popular house plants, with showy leaves and cascading growth habit. Very fast growing and easy in care. In nature, it grows as a climber with tendrils. Leaves are broadly ovate, toothed, leathery, glossy, deep green. The perfect addition to any home, office, or greenhouse setting. The plant prefers medium light intensity but will also tolerate shade for short periods of time. Maintain an evenly moist soil during the growing season but give less water in winter.
