Cyphostemma cirrhosum Family: Vitaceae. This grape relative is an interesting caudiciform with thick green leaves and vines. The caudex itself is extremely attractive, especially once it starts gaining some size. It is fat with peeling white to brownish skin or bark. The plant grows as a vine and the caudex will get several inches thick in time. A mature plant can be raised to show off the woody roots too. Easy to grow. Likes a fair amount of water during the summer (try not to let the pot dry out, but don't keep it wet either as it is a succulent). In the winter it will drop its leaves and become dormant. Keep it pretty dry until it starts growing again. Protect from frost.
You will receive a plant shown in the last image or one similar. Plants shown in a 4" pot.
Important Shipping Information
- PLANTS ARE SHIPPED BARE ROOT If you want me to send them in pots send me a message to discuss. Extra charges due to increased shipping costs will apply.
- Immediate Payment (eBay only) Sorry! I can no longer offer a delayed purchase option as the multichannel inventory management system I have started using requires this setting.
- No Delayed Shipping (eBay only) Once you pay I have to (and WILL) ship within 3 business days or eBay will lower my seller rating. I used to have a way to delay shipping but can no longer do this for the same reason as #2 above. Feel free to message me before buying to see if we can figure something out here, no promises though.
- Winter Shipping If you live in a cold climate consider including a 96 hour heat pack in your order during the cold months. I have them as a listing. Just add it to your order. If you don’t see them just message me.
