These relatives of Virginia creeper, Boston ivy, and grape are valued for their foliage; flowers are inconspicuous. Most climb by tendrils, and most will double as groundcovers in mild-winter climates. Easy to grow; not fussy about soil, water, or fertilizer. Prune any time to remove tangled or weak stems or to restrict size. Grown as houseplants, they prefer bright reflected light, moderate water.Cissus antarctica
