Tetrastigma voinierianum, Cissus tetrastigma

Lizard Plant, Chestnut Vine, Giant Grape Ivy, Wild Grape
Family: Vitaceae
Origin: Laos
Vine or creeperShadeSemi-shadeRegular water

Ultimate Tropical Liana for indoors or Southern garden. It is an impressive, fast-growing tropical-looking liana displaying very large, five-lobed leaves that look similar to those of chestnut leaves. A beautiful centerpiece for a well-lit conservatory, sun porch or greenhouse with a steady, comfortable temperature and a high level of humidity.

If you want to bring exotic tropics into the house, growing chestnut vine indoors may be just the ticket! A rampant climber, the chestnut vine may grow a foot or more in a month in ideal conditions. A vigorous climber with lush foliage and 8 inches or longer tendrils for climbing purposes, they are allowing the vine to wind its way up the trunks of trees. The underside of the leaves are clear pearl-like bumps, which are actually plant secretions that are used by ant colonies when grown in its wild habitat.

Chestnut vine is difficult to obtain for cultivation but it is well worth the effort! Indoors, this vigorous plant can quickly fill an entire room in the right conditions! Good care, pruning, and training can be useful in preventing it from overtaking your living space. The plant is safe at temperatures ranging from 55-85F. It likes lots of bright, indirect sunlight. Shelter the plant from direct sunlight. Water generously during the growing season and sparingly during the autumn and winter. Feed monthly during the growing season.

Fatshedera, Ivy Tree
Family: Araliaceae
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

The Ivy Tree is an usual plant in that it's the result of a cross between two genera, the Hedera (English ivy) and Fatsia japonica. The resulting hybrid has the interesting and lovely leaf shape of the Fatsia, which can be seen growing along the roadsides throughout the tropical world, and the cultural requirements and basic climbing habit of its ivy parent. As a shrub, Fatshedera can grow up to 1.2 m tall, above which the weight of the fairly weak branches makes them tend to bend over. It can however also be tied to a support and grow into a vine up to 3-4 m tall; unlike Hedera, it does not readily climb without assistance.

It is grown both as a garden plant outdoors, and as a houseplant indoors, where its tolerance of shady conditions is valued.

Pothos, Money Plant
Family: Araceae
Origin: Southeast Asia
Vine or creeperShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliageIrritatingSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

It is a liana growing to 60 ft tall, with stems up to 1,5 in diameter, climbing by means of aerial roots which hook over tree branches. The leaves are evergreen, alternate, heart-shaped, marbled with creamy white or gold, entire on juvenile plants, but irregularly pinnatifid on mature plants, up to 3 ft long and 18 in broad.

It is a popular very hardy houseplant with numerous cultivars selected for leaves with white, yellow, or light green variegation.

Plant is said to bring good luck and prosperity in the house.

This species has been assigned to a number of genera. In 1880 when it was first described, it was named Pothos aureus, which is in part why it is often commonly referred to as a "pothos". After a flower was observed in 1962, it was given the new name of Raphidophora aurea. However, after closer examination of the flower, researchers noticed its heightened similarity to Epipremnum pinnatum and synonymised it with that species. Only after further observations of all parts of the plant, including the leaves and growing patterns, was it again separated from E. pinnatum, as E. aureum.

The plant has a multitude of common names including golden pothos, Ceylon creeper, hunter's robe, ivy arum, house plant, money plant, silver vine, Solomon Islands ivy, marble queen, and taro vine. It is also called devil's vine or devil's ivy because it is almost impossible to kill and it stays green even when kept in the dark. It is sometimes mistakenly labeled as a Philodendron in plant stores. It is commonly known as money plant in many parts of the Indian subcontinent. It rarely flowers without artificial hormone supplements; the last known spontaneous flowering was reported in 1964.

The plant has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

Mangifera indica, Mango
Mango Choc Anon

Mangifera indica

Mango
Family: Anacardiaceae
Origin: South Asia and India
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Oldest cultivated fruit tree in the world. The lovely mango was cultivated in India 4,000 years ago, and the plant itself is impressive, with leafy green foliage. The fruit, delicious for breakfast or dessert, is yellow and red with black specks, and generally kidney-shaped. This tasty and nutritious fruit is becoming increasingly popular in the States. It grows in the tropics and warm subtropics. It will grow in poor soils and does not need a lot of water. Good production starts in 2 to 3 years with grafted trees, although grafted trees will flower and fruit the first year even when small. Wet or cool weather during bloom in the spring limits fruit set. Temperatures of 40F will damage mango blossoms. Mature trees may tolerate 25F for a few hours with leaf and small branch damage, but young trees may be killed at 29-30F. Trees in the tropics become large and stately like oaks. Warning: Some people react to the skin of mango fruit like they do to poison ivy. Varieties: Over 400 varieties. According to variety, tree can be large or small, producing early, mid or late season fruit. Much variation in color, flavor, and fiber content according to variety.

Philodendron cordatum, Heart Leaf Philodendron

Philodendron cordatum

Heart Leaf Philodendron
Family: Araceae
Origin: Brazil
Vine or creeperSemi-shadeEpiphyteRegular water

This name is often mistakenly applied to the popular houseplant Philodendron hederaceum, the Ivy Philodendron. While "cordatum" means heart-shaped and both species have heart-shaped leaves the species name cannot be applied to the Ivy Philodendron.

Philodendron cordatum has two growth phases, the juvenile form and the mature form, which often appear very different in leaf size and shape. Juvenile Philodendron cordatum leaves are very similar to Philodendron hederaceum leaves.
