Love will definitely be in the air with this charming, trailing semi-succulent vine.
Ceropegia woodii ssp. Woodii has small heart shaped leaves with a delightful green lace pattern that grow in opposite pairs along a trailing vine. The pinkish-purple undersides of the leaves and stems add a romantic hue.
Also known as Rosary Vine or Chain of Hearts, Ceropegia woodii is not truly a succulent, but it does store water in its stems and plant care is very similar to that of a succulent. String of Hearts is extremely easy to look after and very tolerant of neglect. It is a perfect plant for for hanging baskets.
Please note: String of hearts vines are coiled in the packaging by the growers to protect them in transit. On opening, we recommend gently unfurling the coils and teasing apart the vines around the pot. If you rush this stage, you risk losing a lot of your vines. Let the coils hang for several days before continuing to gently separate the vines (patience is a virtue). Some leaf loss is unavoidable, however they are fast growing plants and will regenerate quickly.
The images shown represent plants of varying degrees of maturity and size.
Gently does it! Take extra care when uncoiling vines to avoid losing losing any of your String of Hearts lovely limbs!
Just a dash! If you notice the colour is beginning to fade, a little direct sunlight in the morning or evening should help maintain the vibrancy of the leaves.
Wet, wet, wet! The soil ought to be moist to the touch, but not dripping! Check the soil with a finger before watering for best results.
