Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Possibly the most beautiful trailing/climbing houseplant you can find! We are offering mature plants which already have a generous length of foliage and can boast instantly stunning looks.

The elongated, heart-shaped leaves look like a begonia, hence its common name – Rex begonia vine – but this vining plant from South East Asia is actually related to grape vines.  The elegant leaves have beautiful deep green and silver patterning and are held with poise on very slender, wine-red stems, showing off their burgundy undersides to advantage. Cissus discolor is equipped with twining tendrils so it can be grown as a climber up a pole, but our plants look especially elegant trailing down from their hanging pots in a beautiful cascade of colourful foliage.
Please note: The leaves and stems produce a natural secretion, tiny opaque dots, called cystolyths. These little crystals are sometimes thought to be pests, but are not harmful.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Grow in bright, indirect light, avoiding strong, direct, sunlight. Maintain the temperature above 15°C. Provide high humidity by regular misting. Water regularly between spring and autumn: the compost should be kept moist at all times but not saturated – allow water to freely drain through the medium. Feed during the growing season with a balanced houseplant feed. Reduce watering in the winter and avoid draughts.
