Striking | Delicate | Romantic
The varegated version of this amazing plant is a particularly exciting find! Ceropegia Woodii, or String of Hearts, is a unique and exciting addition to any plant collection!
The small heart shaped leaves grow skattered along thin wire-y vines and produce delicate trumpet-shaped, pink to lilac colored flowers annually. Ceropegia Woodii is a moderately fast growing beauty and with proper care can easily grow 10 - 15 feet long within a few years!
Propagate easily by placing small potato-like rhisomes that grow along the vines into water or soil.
Lighting: Medium to bright indirect
Water: When ~2/3 of the soil is dry and very sparing in Winter (just enough to avoid complete dry out)
Soil/Potting: Plant in a well draining soil (cactus mix or potting soil and sand 1:1) in a container with a drainage hole and made of slightly porous material like ceramic. Keep soil shallow to allow for proper drying. Repot annually or when plant exhibits discoloration without the presence of any mis-watering habits
Fertilize: Monthly with bacterial inoculant recomended for steady growth and to promote flowering
Temperature: Room temp, protect from harsh fluctuations in temperature particularly in the winter
Toxicity: Non-toxic for humans and pets; still definitely not tasty..
