Cercestis mirabilis' triangular shaped leaves are green with whitish silver markings that slowly fade as the plant matures. Initially the juvenile plants starts as terrestrial vines and then becomes climbing epiphytes, sending out long bumpy, adhesive roots. Long stemmed offsets produce smaller plants with time after sending out small white flowers. These are very healthy tropical plants with well established root systems.
These are very easy to grow tropical plants that require little care indoors or out. Like other aroids, many species of Cercestis can be grown as houseplants, or outdoors in mild climates. They thrive in moist soils with high organic matter and grow best when provided with a mossy post or burlap wrapped pole to climb. Cercestis plants can be grown in pots, hanging baskets or outdoors as a ground cover or beautiful tree wrap.
Cercestis grow very well in patio and indoor containers. Allow enough room for growth. Generally, for a mature plant a 35 cm (14 inches) diameter, 25 cm (10 inches) deep container will suffice to get grow. Remember the looser the roots, the taller and healthier your plant will be. When the plant becomes root bound its growth will slow, at that point it is time for a larger pot. It enjoys well drained but moist, rich organic soil mix. (from www.kensphilodendrons.com)
