    I loathe the label "Tropical Foliage"! I need a little more to go on in order to care for the plant properly! If someone could ID my newest addition I would be grateful! I've attached some pictures. One of the whole plant and another one of the leaves. It's kinda hard to see in the pictures but there are soft spine-like things on the edges of the leaves and roots wherever the leaves join the stems. Should be easy to propagate!!

    Thanks all!

    Probably a species of Cissus, if not that, a close relative in the same family (Vitaceae).

    Looks like Parthenocissus 'Sugarvine'.

    Does indeed look like a Sugarvine. Although the taxonomy looks like a mess, you'll find a lot of hits under Parthenocissus striata.

    That's it! Thank you so much! Now if I can find a site that tells me it's requirements we'll be in business!

    Thanks again!
