Grape ivy, also known as oakleaf ivy, is the most widely grown species of Cissus. It has shiny, deep green leaves. The plant develops curling tendrils that cling to a stake or trellis. Give the plant medium light, keep the soil evenly moist, and grow it at room temperature for best results. Avoid overwatering, which can cause leaves to drop.
