Identification: A dark leaf vine

Discussion in 'Indoor and Greenhouse Plants' started by Unregistered, Aug 28, 2005.

  1. i am interested in knowing the name of a vine. This hanging indoor plant has dark green oval shaped leaves that are very shiny. The leaves are two inches in length and at the widest part are about an inch. The plant also has blossoms wich at first glance look un real plastic almost. The blossoms are just a few milimeters in diameter and are grouped together numbering ten or so flowers. Before opening they are pink. Then when fully open they have white petals with a red center. Once open they produce the tiniest droplet of sweet nectar. If anyone can help I will be truly grateful. membudo1992@yahoo.com
