With mesmerizing colors of silver, burgundy, green, and purple, the Cissus discolor is a vining houseplant– and this 6 inch version comes already climbing on a bamboo arch. Due to the slight resemblance, it’s also called the Rex begonia vine– though not actually a begonia, but rather of the Cissus genus. New leaves emerge small and amber colored, but evolve into larger, multi-colored foliage.
Note: this plant naturally produces tiny secretions (not to be confused with pests!). During winter, this plant could drop some leaves (only to rebound once spring comes).
