Occasionally, String of Hearts like to surprise everyone by flowering. The blooms are subtle and look almost like small vases.
Its cascading form can reach 3 to 9 feet long!
Easy to propagate in water from cuttings. The roots will grow from the nodes, which is where the leaf meets the stem. You should have at least one node, if not two, under water.
Native to Southern Africa, the String of Hearts was discovered by botanist John Medly Wood approximately 1800 feet up Groenberg Mountain. After sending a plant to Kew Gardens, they then named it after him (Ceropegia woodii).
Considered non-toxic for pets and people.
Other common names include: String of Hearts, Chain of Hearts plant, Rosary Vine, Sweetheart Vine, Hearts Entangled
Light: String of Hearts love bright, direct sunlight - a windowsill is ideal, although not all day sunshine, as that might scorch the leaves; a couple of hours would be optimum.
Water: Stores water in its leaves, therefore only water when the soil is completely dry, as they don’t like sitting in water.
Humidity: Happy without any extra humidity due to its arid natural habitat.
Temperature: Minimum temperature 15 degrees.
