I grow a solid green S. macroglossus that came from an orchid breeder in Naples, FL. It looks exactly like a mini english ivy but is much easier to grow and propagate. I plan to allow it to vine up the side of a window in our garden room.

Propagation is a snap, just cut off a piece and push it into moist soil.

This plant makes few demands on the gardener and can grow in many light situations. Makes a wonderful indoor specimen in the north.

the interesting thing about this quick climber is that although it looks very much like ivy, it is actually part of the daisy family. it's a pleasure to have in the garden... apart from the fact that it needs no looking after, it's pale cream flowers are an unexpected delight.
