Ceropegia Woodii Care Guide
Ceropegia woodii, also known as the “string of hearts” or “chain of hearts,” is a trailing, flowering plant native to South Africa. It is a popular choice for hanging baskets or as a trailing plant in a container or on a shelf. Here are some general care guidelines for Ceropegia woodii:
Ceropegia woodii prefers bright, indirect light. It will tolerate some direct sun, but it is best to avoid placing it in direct sunlight for extended periods of time as this can cause the leaves to yellow and the plant to become scorched.
Water your Ceropegia woodii regularly, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between watering. Be sure to not let the plant sit in standing water, as this can lead to root rot.
Ceropegia woodii prefers warm temperatures, with a range of 15-24°C being ideal.
Use a well-draining potting soil, and be sure to provide adequate drainage by using a pot with drainage holes.
Fertilize your Ceropegia woodii every two to four weeks during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer like Grobest.
Prune your Ceropegia woodii as needed to remove any dead or damaged leaves or stems. This will encourage new growth and help keep the plant looking healthy.
Overall, Ceropegia woodii is a relatively low-maintenance plant that is easy to care for as long as it is given the proper light, water, and nutrients. With a little bit of attention, it can make a beautiful addition to your home or garden.
