Cissus discolor

This species , unlike most members of the genus Cissus, likes warm and humid conditions and lots of light. Therefore, it is best grown in a glassed enclosure. It is a rapidly growing liana with red stems, tendrils and stalks. The velvety leaf blades are 15 cm (10 in) long, 8 cm (3 in) wide. They are marbled above and coloured reddish-purple on the underside. Small clusters of yellow flowers grow from the axils of the leaves. To ensure that the leaves are as colourful as possible, provide plenty of light. Never allow the compost to dry out because the leaves will drop. Propagate by tip cuttings.
