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 has a silvery glow with striking white veins, while the undersides are a light, burgundy colour.
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.
Toxicity: Keep away from nibbly pets and curious children
Key Benefits of the Jungle Vine
Improve your home’s air quality with this wonderful Amazonian plant!
As part of its photosynthesis, the Jungle Vine removes Carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and releases the fresh oxygen that you breathe!
Tropical plants are perfect natural humidifiers, they transpire the water that they consume and humidify the air, helping relieve symptoms of breathing problems and skin sensitivities.
Jungle Vine Plant Care Tips
- This plant prefers a well-lit position away from direct sunlight.
A native of tropical jungles, the Jungle Vine loves warmer temperatures (ideally above 15ºC) and humidity, so mist it semi-regularly with a mister or spray bottle.
- During the growing season, it will need more regular watering, letting the soil dry before repeating the process.
- In the Spring and Summer, feed it with a half diluted balanced fertiliser twice a month.
The Jungle Vine Story

Where is it from?

Who is the Jungle Vine?
Parthenocissus are part of the Vitaceae family, the same group as the grapes!
The name ‘Parthenocissus‘ comes from the Greek parthenos meaning ‘virgin’ and kissos meaning ‘ivy’. This is because they can form seeds without pollination.
- They can also be grown outdoors during the warmer months.
