in 1824. This Vitaceae
originates from Mexico, Guatemala and Nicaragua, where it lives among the rocks. A bit of water and
some sun, and the small green flowers will appear. It can be reproduced
both by "air-bulbs" cuttings and seeds. The caudex will grow to
20 centimetres in diameter, and several meters long, lying on the
ground. The vines will reach for up to five meters.
It might have been
described by Knuth as Cissus tiliacea in 1821, but is
considered to be the same species, and the
well-known name tuberosa remains.
The generic name is derived
from the Greek word κισσος kissos, meaning 'ivy'. The species
name means 'a bulbous plant'.
Also classicified as Ampelidaceae.
