Cissus Plant Care – Your Green Thumb’s Best Friend

With a Cissus plant, it’s always a ‘growing’ good time!

You know all those times when you’ve wished for a plant buddy that doesn’t require the care of a newborn? Here, we introduce the Cissus Plant – a resilient green friend here to bring nature into your homes without the high maintenance.

  • Light: Like a sun-loving diva, the Cissus plant loves bright, indirect light. But don’t worry, it won’t throw a tantrum in less-than-ideal conditions.
  • Temperature: Cissus plants enjoy a pleasant, comfortable room temperature – just like us! Keep them away from drafts and sudden temperature changes.

  • Watering: Water it like you’d water a cactus. Too much love (water), and you could drown it. Keep it simple – water when the top 1 inch of soil dries out.
  • Soil: Use a well-drained potting mix, ideally one that comprises peat moss, perlite, and compost.
  • Fertilization: Feed your Cissus plant with a general-purpose, liquid houseplant fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength every 2 weeks during the growing season (spring-summer). In the dormant months (winter), reduce the feeding to once a month. Remember, less is often more when it comes to plant food!
  • Potting: The Cissus Plant is not particular about its pot. However, ensure that your selected container has sufficient drainage holes, as Cissus does not like wet feet.

  • Pruning: Keep your Cissus plant’s growth in check by pruning regularly. Snip, snip, and off goes those unruly twigs!
  • Propagation: Propagation of the Cissus Plant is a breeze! You can simply take stem cuttings of about 4-6 inches in spring, remove the bottom leaves, and place them in water or directly in soil. Keep the cuttings in a well-lit area but out of direct sunlight. They will root in a few weeks.
  • Pest Control: Despite its hardy nature, Cissus plants can be prone to spider mites. These tiny pests are not easily visible, but their damage is. If you notice your Cissus leaves turning yellow or getting tiny spots, give it a bath! Yes, gently shower the foliage with lukewarm water, ensuring that the underside of the leaves is also cleaned. This simple step can keep your Cissus healthy and pest-free.
