I was unable to find the particular plant you are inquiring about what I
did find was:
Shrubs really, but with all the appearance of a vine, the several
hundred members of the CISSUS group are greatly favored for ground cover
in warm semi-shade places with deep rich soil and as sturdy pot plants
for home and greenhouses in cold climates. CISSUS is easily propagated
form spring cuttings and will scramble over old log and rocks by means
of tough tendrils. Plenty of water an regular weak liquid manure give
the best leaf coloration.
Shrub 2 ft
WHERE: South America
GROWS: All Year
from WHAT FLOWER IS THAT? by Stirling Macoboy
Not exactly what you needed but maybe it will give you a start.
