Cissus quadrangularis. (Vitaceae) climbing cactus, cactus vine, succulent-stemmed wild grape, edible-stemmed vine, velddruif . It is a succulent climber with green stems and branches. The stems are quadrangular in shape, buff coloured with greenish tinge, dichotomously branched, sub-angular, glabrous, fibrous and smooth, often leafless. They are winged but the wings are never corky. Historically, it has been used to treat many conditions, including hemorrhoids, gout, asthma, and allergies. However, recent research has found that this power-packed plant may also help promote bone health, relieve joint pain, and protect against chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Sowing : Seed should be sown in spring or during summer, in a well-drained seedling mix, and need only be covered lightly with the sowing mix, clean coarse sand or milled bark. The trays should be kept moist in a warm but shaded position. Locality: Ex Hort. Harvest: January 2023
