Grape Ivy 'Peruvian'
Just look at those little curls! Did you know that Cissus is the scientific name for the genus of plants that grapes belong to? Some surprising members of this crew include the Cissus discolor (Tapestry Vine), Cissus striata (Sugar Vine), and Cissus rotundifolia (Peruvian Grape Ivy)! Shown here is the Cissus rotundifolia or Peruvian Grape Ivy. Its thick glossy leaves and easygoing growth patterns have earned this plant a spot among my personal favorites!
Those adorable curly pig tail like tendrils will grab onto nearby objects to help the plant climb! With a string or trellis you can tease this plant into just about any shape you'd like!
Water when the top one inch of the soil is dry and keep in an indirect light. It is tolerant of most indirect lighting conditions making it a viable option for some lower light settings. Fertilize regularly for optimal growth.
