Rio, the Cissus amazonica
Meet Rio! He’ll be your guide on your Amazon journey today. Hands and feet inside the canoe at all times, please. And you can forget about cell phone reception. Is that a line of caimans watching from the banks? Trust Rio to keep you safe as he navigates along, wrapping tendrils around branches to help you find your way through the jungle. The humidity can be overpowering but that’s just the way he likes it. He’s got the rainforest in his soul and will always share it with you.
We recommend planting this plug in our regular potting soil.
This plant ships as a 1″ fully rooted starter plant, as shown in the second photo. It will come wrapped in moss and tucked in a growers pot for safety. The terra cotta pot with the mature plant, shown in the first photo, is not included.
If you order multiple plants, we put them together in one pot so they stay moist and insulated. If you think we haven’t sent the full order, please take out the plants from the pot first to count them.
