Cissus ivy has been a favorite houseplant of indoor gardeners for decades. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to find at your local nursery since only a few American growers are still producing it. But, Cissus is well worth a search and adding to your collection of interesting indoor plants and elegant hanging baskets.
Grape Ivy (aka Cissus rhombifolia) so called because its leaves resemble those of grapevines and its small, dark berries resemble grapes.
These plants are very easy to grow, make excellent potted houseplant and hanging plants indoors.
In some areas of the southern United States, Grape Ivy can grow outdoors (but prefers partial shade) and makes an excellent ground cover or climbing plant for trellises and as a climbing plant for pergolas.
Ivy plants indoors do well in bright indirect light. The plant can tolerate low light settings but will need pinching back frequently as it stretches toward any light source.
