Cissus rhombifolia ‘Ellen Danica’
Grape Ivy 'Ellen Danica'
An attractive and forgiving indoor plant, perfect for lighting up a trickier lightly shaded corner of any home. The silvery green oak-like leaves are glossy with an unusual light bronze fuzz, and spill in mounding tendrils to great effect from hanging baskets or shelves.
‘Ellen Danica’ is a compact cultivar of the more vigorous species plant Cissus rhombifolia, found in tropical regions of South and Central America and the Caribbean islands. Its tropical heritage explains a preference for some humidity, although this plant is surprisingly tolerant of average household conditions.
Care & Size Guidance
This plant can be left to trail or trained to climb over any structure, making it a very versatile choice for making the best use of space indoors.
Make sure you take care to let the soil dry out between watering and do not leave sitting in water for long periods as tropical Cissus species can be susceptible to root rot if overwatered. Otherwise this is a very tough and easygoing plant that makes a great choice for beginners.
