  • Cis-sus is Greek for ivy. The specific epithet name “rhombifolia” refers to the leaf shape.
  • A commonly grown cousin is C. antarctica or kangaroo vine.
  • ‘Ellen Danica’ has oak-shaped leaves while ‘Mandaiana’ and ‘Mandaiana Compacta’ have progressively more compact growth habits.
  • Light compensation point was estimated to be lower than 500 ft-c. but no precise number was presented. This finding is an indication that this species should do well under most interior light intensity levels.
