String of Hearts (Rosary Vine) How to Grow Care

I saw a picture of this adorable plant and really want to give one to my husband for our anniversary. Can you tell me the name and how to care for it?

Hi Cindy,

This “adorable” houseplant is a variegated String of Hearts plant  Ceropegia woodii), also called a Rosary Vine plant.

This is a wonderful semi-succulent hanging plant that is so easy to care for I’m surprised everyone doesn’t have one. The important thing to remember is that A String of hearts plant (Rosary Vine) doesn’t like to be over- watered! Here are some care tips:

Light: Bright light with some direct sun early in the day.

Water: Keep the soil barely moist in spring and summer. Cut back on your water during  fall and winter allowing the plant to practically dry out before watering

Fertilizer: Feed monthly in spring and summer with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength. Do not feed in the fall and winter.

Humidity: Basic household humidity

Temperature:  65-75°F/18-24°C

Propagation: Really easy to propagate. Plant stem tip cuttings into moist soil, that’s all there is to it!
