Text Care Details Facts  none  none

A quite different anv very interesting species. Leaves are medium sized, oval and with a sharp tip. They turn red in sunlight and have very visible veines. A very slow grower so equip yourself with plenty of patiens. Doesn't climb or twine well on it's own so it needs some help to find it's way up the trellis if such is used. Hanging basket is just as suitable.

In my experience this species is not easily cultivated. It's a heartache to root and once that is acomplished on needs to take backup cuttings every now and then as it can drop dead just like that without any apparent reason. Likes sunlight and can be kept on the dry side though it shouldn't be allowed to dry to the extent of wilting.

Named after Ann Wayman of the IHA.
