3.5" CISSUS QUADRANGULARIS

 

This exotic, creeping, unusual member of the grape family is an awesome house plant that looks great in a hanging basket or on a window sill! It's an extremely low maintenance plant that thrives off of periods of neglect & drought. This species responds very well to the basic guidelines on growing succulents -- well drained soil, drainage hole (& even better -- terracotta pot!), saturate soil when watering, & finally, only water when soil is completely dry. 

It has segmented, rectangular shaped stems that can grow from 3" to ~ 1 foot long! With tendrils that come out & climb easily it will attach to any mechanism you want to attach it to. Or!! Put it in a hanging basket & watch as the long stems fall to the ground. Small leaves will also come out at the nodes seasonally on new growth. It's unusual growth habit & unique appearance make it the perfect choice for your next house plant!
