layering bulbs with other plants

  I was out of town when the original post of the mystery plant was made. The image, upon close examination, seems to shows leaves that have prematurely aborted the expansion of their leaf tips. Perhaps this plant is from a cooler or more humid environment than it's current spot (which otherwise suits it for temps, water, etc) - or maybe it's a sport with stunted leaf tips (virus?).
In that case, the plants might have lanceolate leaf in "normal" form even though this specimen has blunt leaves.
Still no guess from me - but it does look Cissus-ish.
