Ceropegia woodii - String of Hearts
Whether you call it "String of Hearts," "Rosary Vine" or "Sweetheart Vine," there's a lot to love about Ceropegia woodii, a flowering plant from South Africa that makes a fantastic houseplant. Its plump leaves are shaped just like little hearts, deep green in color lined with bright light blue. The new grown and stems are often tinged pink. The leaves appear on long cascading vines that hang straight down, creating an effect almost like a beaded curtain of heart-shaped leaves. String of Hearts often flowers, and its blooms are pale magenta with deep purple centers – a sweetheart among indoor plants..
• Light: Loves bright indirect or dappled light
• Water: Allow the top 2" of soil to dry between waterings
• Considerations: String of Hearts is semi-succulent and can tolerate periods of drought

Unbelievable how quickly everything arrives from you all ...and in such good shape. If possible, can you contact me when you get this plant in 4" pot? It would be much appreciated. Thank you again for helping me add to my ever growing collection
Healthier, Larger and More Beautiful Than Advertised!
Oh wow...never in a million years did I expect to get a plant that looked better than it did in the ad. It has never happened before. This is the first time I have ordered from Pistils Nursery and they have earned a customer for life. The plant is beautiful, healthy and full of leaves. I wish I could post a picture of what a beautiful plant it is. Pistils Nursery has a new customer for life!
String of Hearts
The plant is still very new. So far it seems to be fine and greening up after shipping. It is on a bright windowsill with indirect sunlight. I'm being careful with watering as it is still in its little pot. It's starting to send out its strings. Very nice.
