The Cissus is originally from East Africa. Cissus discolor comes from a genus of about 350 species of cissus, which are vine plants. Cissus comes from the Greek word Kissos, which means ivy. So it is a climbing plant, related to the well-known grape. Don't expect grapes from your Cissus, though! The plant is also sometimes referred to as a chamber wing, but this is not a unique name: there are several plants that are called that. Because it is a climbing plant, this Cissus needs some grip. The pot therefore contains a pyramid of bamboo sticks, along which the plant climbs upwards. The nice thing about the discolor is that the top and bottom of the leaf have a different color.
- Place the plant in a sunny spot. Half shade is also possible.
- Water moderately. The soil may dry slightly between waterings.
