Cissus amazonica is an attractive vine from the jungles of Brazil. The leaves are lance shaped, olive-green with gray main veins. The back of the leaf is red. This vine climbs by wrapping its tendrils around anything it can get hold of. This climber grows fast when given lots of humidity. Grow it in a hanging basket or in an enclosed container. The leaves and stems produce a natural secretion, tiny opaque dots, called cystolyths. These little crystals are sometimes thought to be pests, but are not harmful.
