Comment:

A popular houseplant in the Vitaceae family that preforms well in bright to low light situations. It does well in hanging baskets.  Pointed-oval leaves are shiny, medium green and up to  4 inches long. They have  toothed edges and appear singly on short, red leaf-stalks.  Pinch back leaves for a more bushy habit.  Leaves will turn brown and die if place in drafty areas or near heating vents.  Once established, plants should be kept in the same location as they dislike change.
