The Jungle Vine is a rare hanging houseplant that can be left to trail elegantly over bookshelves, or climb at your will. The surface of their lean, pointed leaves have a silvery glow with striking white veins, while the undersides are a light, burgundy colour.
These beautiful plants are a cultivar of Wingerd, a family of climbing plants that can be found in North America and east Asia. Though hard to come by commercially, they're fast growing, with the leaves alone reaching length of 7 to 15cm in their prime.
Jungle Vines love humidity, so mist it semi-regularly with a mister or spray bottle.
Comes with its own detachable hanger, so you can pop it straight up overhead and let your home breathe!
Alternatively, it's very easy to unclip the hanger and pop it in a pot or basket, where it can sit on a shelf, desk or mantlepiece. Just make sure to pick a pot or basket that can accommodate the wide overhanging lip of the growing pot.
Growing pot dimensions: 15cm diameter, 13cm depth.
Pets: Some sources say Hoyas are pet-safe, others point out that their sap contains latex which can be dangerous, so avoid if you have plant-nibblers.
