Cissus discolour is a stunning but hard to find indoor plant. It has stunning leaf colours, with new growth exhibiting a burgundy marking with variegations that are almost pale blue in colour. Often referred to as the Begonia Rex Vine due to it closely resembling a Rex Begonia, it is definately from the Cissus family. It grows successfully indoors provided the potting mix is kept moist and drains well. It is most happy in a warm spot indoors with filtered sun light. Each plant measures approximately 12 cm to 15cm in height.
This rare Cissus can go semi-dormant in cool climates. In warm weather it grows quickly, creating a truly stunning statement. It climbs by wrapping its small tendrils around supports so this one is perfect if you want to train it up a wall to make a living sculpture, provided you give it some support.
The plant is super delicate and is likely to wilt during transport. However please note that provided it is repotted shortly after arrival and kept moist, it will soon bounce back. The plant will be shipped bare rooted, wrapped in sphagnum moss, surrounded in bubble wrap and taped securely within a large postage tube to minimise movement during transit. Please note that some damage can occur during transit on occasions, despite my best efforts to package our plants ready for travel. I hope you understand if that does by chance occur.
For WA, NT and Tas customers, an additional fee of $20 per plant is applicable due to the requirements associated with quarantine compliance, including chemical treatment. Separate and additional costs are also charged by respective Departments of Biosecurity in WA, Tas and NT to inspect these plants upon their arrival.
