Ceropegia woodii - String of Hearts - Variegated
Light conditions: Bright indirect light is the best, but Ceropegia do incredibly well in medium and lower light environments. Direct sun will cause the leaves to turn a purple hue, while lower light will turn leaves a green colour.
Watering: Allow the top two-three inches of the soil to thoroughly dry out between waterings. Be careful not to overwater. Ceropegia is extremely drought-tolerant.
During the winter months, the soil can be allowed to almost completely dry out.
Humidity: High humidity is ideal, but regular household levels are generally adequate.
Ideal Temperature: Prefers warmer conditions. Keep away from drafty windows, heat vents or air conditioners and maintain a room temperature of 15C+.
Soil/Nutrients: Ideally A well-draining soil made for succulents or cacti.Although fertilizer is not necessary for plants with sufficient soil minerals. You can help enhance growth and overall plant health by using fertilizer during active growing times. Aim to repot during active growing times.
Good to know: Plants that have just been shipped will be stressed, they may not look as beautiful as the picture and will need time to bounce back. How would you look after being in a dark box for a few days? Most plants will need a good drink, place in medium light and increase after a few days if needed. Do not repot for at least two weeks to avoid stressing plants out further.
