This is not a curtain, is a root!

This is the root of Cissus sicyoides, it is also commonly known as Curtain Ivy or Princess Vine. This beautiful lady carries long reddish roots that forming a dense lacy curtain.

It looks like a Mammoth from far, but I am sure she is much more gentler.

This amazing plant is not the true Ivy but is a close relative of grape family.

 Traditionally, it can be used to treat rheumatism, ulcer and diabetes. To me, this is the most elegant doctor I ever met.

  1. I take it, but only for the summer ;-)

  2. Looks interesting. Do the roots generally hang in the open air or is that only for presentation?

  3. Wow, now I’ve seen something else new to me. What a magnificent plant, if only my garden were big enough. Happy New Year. :)

  4. Oh I’d love to have it! It’s so beautiful :)

  5. I love it and I do not having it as a curtain!

  6. That is a beautiful curtain and also nature friendly. I’d like to order for my garden too, Sydney :P

  7. This is so fascinating, Sydney. :)
