Ceropegia Woodii - String of Hearts
Ceropegia woodii is a good hanging plant with long, pendulous stems and small heart-shaped leaves. Leaves are dark green and marbled with silver.
String of Hearts is native to South Africa, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe. Flowers resemble small upturned vases. They are 1 inch tall and bulbous at the base.
Water carefully, and be sure to let the soil become dry in between waterings. The container should have drainage holes as the roots may rot if they stay too wet.
Fertilize monthly from May thru August with a balanced fertilizer diluted to 1/2 the strength recommended on the label.
From November to March, water sparingly; do not fertilize during this rest period.
The plant does best if crowded, so repot only when necessary.
Repotting is done in April before new growth starts.
