Ceropegia Woodii * String of Hearts * Flowering Plant * Very Rare * 3 Seeds *
THIS LISTING IS FOR 3 SEEDS OF CEROPEGIA WOODII This unusual, hardy vining succulent produces pretty, variegated, heart-shaped leaves on tough, wire-like stems. Ceropegia woodii trails nicely and makes an unusual hanging plant. The vines can grow to be two or three feet long, and the pretty leaves are deep green with variegated silver markings. The nearly odorless Chinese lantern flowers are small and a peculiar shade of brownish pink. Some people say these blooms looked like little vases with a rounded base and long, narrow top. As a member of the Milkweed family (Asclepiadaceae), the plant provides plenty of visual interest. In addition to its attractive leaves, it also produces small, bead-like tubers or bulbs at intervals along the vine giving it the appearance of a rosary. These bulbs can be planted like seeds to grow new plants quickly and easily. Tuck them into the soil around the parent plant or place them in new pots and you’ll have a new rosary plant almost before you know it. Water: As a succulent, these plants like to be watered sparingly, especially in the wintertime. Allow the soil to dry out (almost) and then water thoroughly. Winter care: Your plant will look a bit droopy during the cold months, but only water it sparingly. Begin watering normally in the springtime. Humidity: Ceropegia woodii is comfortable in most household settings. It does not require high humidity. Light: The chain of hearts plant appreciates bright, indirect sunlight, but it can do well in a low light setting. Lower light will result in less contrast in the leaf variegation. Additionally, a low light setting will cause the backs of the leaves to take on a purplish hue. Soil: Use a cactus potting soil mix or combine a regular potting mixture of soil with sand. Fertilizer: During the growing season (spring to midsummer) use a balanced fertilizer for houseplants. Stop fertilizing in midsummer and allow the plant to wind down for its semi-dormant period during the autumn and winter. Hardiness: This plant is native to Africa, so it is only winter hardy in semi-tropical areas of the United States. You can grow it outdoors year-round in zones 11 and 12. Otherwise, let it enjoy being outdoors in light shade the summertime, but be sure to bring it back indoors before the temperature drops in the fall.
