6" Ceropegia woodii (String of Hearts)


Caring for a Ceropegia woodii, commonly known as String of Hearts, is quite straightforward. Here's a simple, numbered guide:

1. Light Requirements
- Bright, Indirect Light: Provide bright, indirect light. Tolerates some direct sunlight but avoid harsh, midday sun to prevent leaf scorch.

2. Watering
- Moderate Watering: Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Water thoroughly and then let the soil dry out before watering again.
- Less in Winter: Reduce watering frequency in the winter months when the plant's growth slows down.

3. Humidity
- Average Humidity: String of Hearts is not too fussy about humidity but thrives in average indoor humidity levels.

4. Temperature
- Warm Temperatures: Prefers temperatures between 60-80°F (15-27°C). Protect from temperatures below 50°F (10°C).

5. Soil
- Well-Draining Mix: Use a well-draining cactus or succulent potting mix. A mix with sand or perlite is ideal to ensure good drainage.

6. Fertilizing
- Occasional Feeding: Feed every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer) with a diluted, balanced liquid fertilizer.
- No Fertilizing in Dormancy: Do not fertilize in fall and winter when growth slows.

7. Pruning
- Minimal Pruning: Pruning is generally not necessary but can be done to control the length of the vines and encourage bushier growth.

8. Repotting
- Repotting Frequency: Repot every 1-2 years or when the plant outgrows its pot, typically in spring. Choose a pot with drainage holes to prevent waterlogging.

9. Pest Management
- Common Pests: Watch for pests like spider mites and aphids. Treat infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

10. Propagation
- Easy Propagation: Propagate by stem cuttings. Place the cuttings in water or directly in soil. Roots will develop within a few weeks.

By following these simple steps, you can keep your String of Hearts healthy and thriving, enjoying its delicate, heart-shaped foliage and trailing vines.
