Just Plants-Chain of Hearts
THE DETAILSAbout: Ceropegia woodii, also known as chain of hearts, is a lovely small houseplant appreciated for its heart-shaped leaves and trailing growth. The perfect choice for a hanging basket or to cascade over a shelf.
Varieties: There are two varieties of chain of hearts. The standard green has a green leaf with a purple tinge on the underside, the variegated cultivar displays green with a pink and green tinge. Check out the pics below
Size: Plastic pot measures 12cm D x 10cm H. The size and appearance of the plant may vary slightly throughout the seasons but from the base of the pot the plant will measure approximately 30-40cm.
Light:Indoors- give it very bright light with no direct sun. Outdoors- Keep in bright shade with no direct sunlight. These are not tolerant to low levels of light.
Water: Prone to over-watering, if watered too regularly or left to sit in water, the chain of hearts can become water logged and get root rot. Allow to dry out to a moist state (not damp) in between waterings. This will vary throughout the seasons as the temperature varies and particularly in winter when it becomes dormant it will not require as much watering. As a general guide, water twice a week in Summer/Spring and once a week in Winter/Autumn.
Position: Indoors- Light filled room. If near a near a window ensure it is not close to the hot glass if facing a westerly aspect in particular. Outdoors- Shaded outdoor position on a covered deck or balcony is perfect. In either environments they can be hung from a ceiling or beam or on a shelf to cascade down
