The perfect beginner’s plant as it thrives on neglect! This East African native is a rare and strange addition to your houseplant collection. Coming from a genus of about 350 species of the vine plant Cissus, the “Peruvian Grape Ivy” or “Arabian Wax Leaf” is an especially beautiful climbing plant, sending its tendrils around whatever you provide. Leaves are round, waxy and leathery in appearance.

If training this Cissus up a patio trellis or fence, provide it some grip such as bamboo sticks. Otherwise, keep this easy care plant in a standard well-drained potting mix and position in sun to part shade. Watering is minimal and allow soil to dry out between waterings. Other common names include: “Venezuelan Treebine” and “Succulent Grape”.
