Some of the branches will get swollen, and the "bulbs" will grow when placed on wet soil. The "eye" forms the root, don't do as I, but stick it in the soil! It actually formed a root under ground as well.

   Described by Augustin Pyramus de Candolle in 1824. This Vitaceae comes from Mexico, where it lives among the rocks. A bit of water and some sun, and the small green flowers will appear. It can be reproduced both by "air-bulbs" cutting and seeds. The caudex will grow to 20 centimetres in diameter, and several meters long, lying on the ground. The vines will reach for up to 5 meters.

It might have been described by Knuth as Cissus tiliacea in 1821, but the well-known name tuberosa remains.

 Also classicified as Ampelidaceae.
