I'd like some advice on a plant which I think is a palm. The label read Cissus rhom. Mandaiana. It also read "produces air". What does this latter claim mean? Would it be suitable for indoors, varying temperatures, semi shade?



Cissus rhombifolia

Though the name 'Mandaiana' is listed as a credited name; The Plant-Finder fails to find a supplier.

Hi Fractal cat and Catty,
Thanks for your help with this question. My plant indentification skills need some attention. I just liked the look of it and might buy it anyhow next time I'm there.
Thanks again.

Nice indoor plant for medium-bright indirect light, and it's very good at filtering out some forms of indoor pollution.

I've got one of these myself as a houseplant. Really easy care, prefers low light situations, though not totally dark. Easy to raise extra plants too, just by cutting off bits you don't want and popping them in water till they root. And its definitely not a palm of any sort.
