Cissus Striata originates from South America. It is very versatile vining plant and can be very different in size depending on growing conditions. Since its discovery it's had many scientific names, but initially this vine comes from a family of grapes. It will give you small green flowers that have pleasantly sweet aroma. If fertilised well, flowers can become glossy dark blue berries, resembling grapes or currants. If you have a plant in a large pot and non-covered soil, Striata could work as well as a groundcover. If in a solo pot, leave it like it is or train to go up the trellis. The choice is yours.
