Ceropegia woodii, commonly known as string of hearts, is a dainty house plant with small, heart-shaped leaves which hang off long, thread-like stems. This hanging plant has variegated green-grey foliage with purple undersides and produces tiny purple tubular flowers.
Size: 8 cm diameter
Light: Bright filtered sun or bright indirect light
Watering: Allow the top 2-3 cm of the compost to dry between waterings when the plant is actively growing, usually from spring through autumn. Allow all the compost to dry in winter when light levels are lower.
Feeding: Use half the recommended dose of a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks from spring through summer.
Soil: Cactus compost.
Troubleshooting: Leaves may lose their coloration if light levels are too low.
Tip: This plant is safe around pets. Keep it away from direct sunlight and drafts. You can display it in a hanging pot or on a high shelf and allow the stems to cascade down.
