Curtain of Roots - Commonly known as Curtain Ivy or Princess Vine Cissus verticillata, this fascinating plant is not really an Ivy but a close relative of the common grape. This unusual species produces an abundance of long aerial roots which form a dense lacy curtain. It is a native to the tropical parts of America and has traditionally been used to treat several diseases including rheumatism, ulcers and diabetes.
