It's an ivy, of some kind. laugh My husband's grandmother gave me two small clippings about a year or so ago, and I rooted them in a glass of water, then planted them. I just don't know for sure, what kind of ivy it is. wink Pretty tho!

Meg,
Watch the canes and you will see that after a while the "joints" below the leaves will start to produce little black looking "bumps" these are roots. You can clip it about half a section below one of these "joints" and place it in water in a sunny window to root more if you like. It really is easy to take care of. It will also "cry" for you. If it gets too dry sometimes you can look real close and see a "teardrop" on the tip of a leaf.
By-the-way-- be sure to turn your pot around a half turn so that it will grow evenly on both sides or you'll end up with heavy growth on one side and thin on the other... (I did that one time, took me forever to get it evened out so it would look full all over)

hey pc, thanks for the info. I did know about the cutting & rooting... that's how I got it in the first place.. grandma in law gave it to me last year.

I have seen the "tears" before, but never heard it called that before..lol. I also didn't realize that was a signal that it needed watering. Cool!

I do have it in front of my kitchen window.. and it seems to like it there.
