Cissus discolor is a fast-growing herbaceous vine that is commonly known as Tapestry Vine or Rex Begonia Vine. It is native to Java and is a member of the Grape family (Vitaceae). The heart-shaped leaves are dark green, mottled with silver markings and the undersides are red. This plant is best grown in a hanging basket or let it climb up a trellis or pergola.
Light: Place the plant in a well-ventilated area whereby it can receive around 4-6 hours of bright but indirect sunlight daily.
Water: Once or twice a day, water the plants thoroughly till excess water drains out of the pot. Do not allow the potting substrate to dry out completely.
Temperature: Plant tolerates temperatures between 18-30°C.
Fertilizer: An all-purpose, water-soluble balanced fertilizer that contains an equal amount of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (e.g. N-P-K: 15-15-15 +TE) will help to boost the plant's overall health by feeding it every two weeks. Otherwise, a slow-release fertilizer (e.g. Osmocote) can be incorporated into the potting media, and to be replenished after about 2-3 months. Do follow the recommended dosage indicated on the fertilizer’s application instructions.
