The Cissus Rotundifolia is originally from East Africa. Cissus comes from a genus of about 350 species of cissus, which fall under the vine plants. Cissus comes from the Greek word Kissos, which means ivy. It is therefore a climbing plant, related to the well-known grape. Don't expect grapes from your Cissus! The plant is sometimes called chamberwing, but this is not a unique name: there are several plants that are named that way. Because it is a climbing plant, this Cissus needs some support. The pot therefore has a pyramid of bamboo sticks, along which the plant climbs upwards.
