Climbing House Plants Identification

Many people consider climbing plants to be pesky and bothersome. They can make unattractive features on the sides of buildings or grow to the point that they cover neighbouring plants. But some types of climbing species work well as decorative house plants that you can train to grow on structures and display indoors.

English Ivy

According to Gardening Know How, English ivy (Hedera helix) is an excellent plant for training around indoor spindles or trellises. The ivy is an evergreen plant that excretes an adhesive substance from small, rootlike structures to help its vines get a firm grip on objects. The dark green, leathery leaves of the English ivy plant feature three to five lobes each, while its small flower clusters, which develop in fall, are a light yellowish-green in colour.

Philodendrons

There are several climbing plant species within the Philodendron genus. These include P. squamiferumis, which has shiny, bright green, five-lobed leaves and a covering of long green and red hairs; P. gloriosum, which has dark green, heart-shaped leaves and ivory-coloured veins; and P. hastatum, which has large, glossy arrow-shaped leaves. According to Botany, philodendrons make excellent choices for climbing house plants, as they thrive at room-level temperatures, between 15.6 and 22.2 degrees Celsius. Try training them around stakes covered in moss, as their roots can absorb moisture from them.

Climbing Lily

The climbing lily (Gloriosa rothschildiana) is a good house plant for training to grow on arches and other rounded structures. According to Mrs. Brown Thumb, the leaves of the lily have tendrils at their ends, which wrap around virtually anything in order to support the growth of the plant. The flowers of the climbing lily have a starburstlike quality, as their interiors are bright red while their outer edges are a brilliant yellow. The one drawback to using these climbers as house plants is that they are a bit boring when not in bloom.

Passionflower

The passionflower (Passiflora, various species) is a perennial, evergreen climbing vine that is native to the Americas. The plant has a woody stem and produces very distinctive flowers, which consist of five sepals, or petal coverings, and five petals each. While the petals are white, the sepals can vary from blue to magenta. According to University of Maryland Medical Center, using herbal forms of passionflower may increase levels of gamma-aminobutyric acids, or GABAs, in the brain, which could potentially explain its calming effects. Historically, medical folk practitioners prescribed passionflower, in the Americas and later in Europe, to treat insomnia, anxiety, hysteria and seizures.
