String of hearts or SOH are also commonly known as Ceropegia Woodii, heart vine and rosary vine. They originate from Africa. The string of hearts plant is just that, it’s literally a string of hearts. Small delicate green hearts with tiny dark green speckles on. It is a succulent vine and they make such a beautiful addition to any bright window or any bright space. You can show them off in a hanging pot or macrame hanger. They grow super fast so a long window space is perfect for this plant. When in the right conditions they produce little tubular flowers. These beautiful plants can reach incredible lengths of 13 feet if not more, they tend to come in smaller pots as they don’t like to stay wet for long as they are succulents.
Top tip – To ensure your plant stays full on top make sure the light reaches the top of the pot (base of the foliage) as even they need light too, otherwise this could be fatal to the plant and its where most plant lovers go wrong.
Non toxic to pets or humans.
Does not come with a cover pot as shown in the photo.
Plants may have been watered before shipping, do not water upon arrival unless they are dry.

Light

Full sun (direct light) – A plant that needs full sun requires at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily to not only survive but thrive. South facing windows are perfect for this but if you do not have any look for a site that get drenched in plenty of sunlight. No barriers between your plant and the light should be present e.g. a tree casting a shadow.

Top Tip – Plants tend to grow towards the light – rotate your plant every time you water it to make them grow evenly.

 

Watering

Low demand – Before you water always feel the soil all the soil should be dry before watering again. Water well and then allow the soil too dry out fully before watering again. If the plant gets too much water, it is at risk of rot.

Water type unsensitive – Normal tap water is fine for this plant

 

Temperature

These are the recommended temperatures for your plant to thrive, making it happy and healthy: 17°C-25°C

 

Fertilizing

Growth period – The growth period for this plant is spring/summer.

In optimal conditions, it should be fertilised during the growth period because this will assist in keeping your plant alive as well as promote healthy growth. You can use a diluted liquid fertiliser or sprinkle a solid fertiliser (Silver Soil Booster) on top of the soil. Always follow the product instructions.

Resting period – The growth period for this plant is autumn/winter.

Only fertilise this plant in its resting period  if it is actively growing (putting out new leaves) and use a weak fertiliser at half the recommended dose. Most plants will go dormant in and stop growing so will not need fertilisation. If you were to fertilise a dormant plant it won’t absorb the nutrients which will stay in the soil and can cause chemical burn to the plant. 

 

Humidity

Dry humidity –  This plant doesn’t require any humidity to thrive.

 

Soil

Succulent/Peperomia mix – These plants tend to have fleshy, water filled leaves so require a well-draining soil to avoid over watering. Try 1-part coco coir or potting mix + 1-part perlite. Alternatively, you can use cactus premade cactus soil.

 

 

Toxicity

Non toxic for animals and humans.

 

As with any plant, do not repot within 1-2 weeks of receiving as you need your plant to acclimatise to your house and recover from the stress of shipping.
