ROSARY VINE - String of Hearts - Ceropegia Woodii

alt alt

Also known as the String of Hearts, the Rosary Vine bears tiny heart shaped leaves on long trailing purplish stems. The leaves are fleshy and are covered with silvery spots on top and purple underneath. The trailing stems can grow 4 feet or more in length if allowed, however they can be trimmed to fit their surroundings. Use the cuttings to start new plants any time of the year.

WATER: Rosary vines like to be moderately dry between thorough waterings, however in the winter months water only enough to keep the leaves from shriveling.

TEMPERATURE: Ideal temperatures are between 60 - 70 degrees however the Rosary Vine will tolerate night temperatures down to 50 degrees.

LIGHT: They like bright indirect light.
