Ceropegia woodii aka String of Hearts

Ceropegia woodii  aka String of Hearts  on 365 Project

A hanging vine, native to South Africa, is a good patio/indoor plant for bright indirect sun. Protect when temperatures fall below 60 degrees F. Well drained soil, needs no humidity.

Mine is about 9 feet long now. I currently have about 3 feet of it wrapped up into a terracotta pot with soil. Not the ideal propagating conditions but it keeps the vine contained until I can get it to its permanent home.

I like that it! Although I have no idea what I would do with 9 feet of plant indoors.

Love the vine. To cold for it outside here in SF, but may need to add some green along the tops of the windows inside. Matti
