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

So excited to receive my String of Hearts. I was on the wait list, and it finally arrived last week - oh happy day! The weather was rather cold here, in the 30’s , but the plants were quite cozy with their heat pack. I unboxed them, shook them out a little and gave them a good watering. They were just a little tired looking upon arrival, but one week later they look great! Healthy, good color, and just about ready to trail over the side of the pot. Thank you Pistals, you make ordering really cool plants online easy and fun! Diane
