Cissus amazonica

6th September 2009

A really decorative species that has been very popular in the USA for growing in Terraria and has now appeared in the UK. I bought it hoping that it would be slightly tougher than the wonderful C.discolor, but I don't think it is. The parent plant died as soon as autumn temperatures in the conservatory dropped (I have moved it to a heated case, but I think too late). I took plenty of cuttings, and they are growing well in a heated propagator but I don't think it has much future here.

Cuttings growing well but I can't imagine that I will protect it again next winter.
