About String of Hearts
The Ceropegia string of hearts has taken the plant world by storm. Native to southern Africa where it grows up to twelve feet, this vining plant is a lovely statement piece in any home. The string of hearts is an ideal plant for a hanging basket, where the vines can trail. For a fuller look, vines can be pinned back to the soil where they’ll root and create new growth! 💚

Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to keep it happy during this time of reduced sunlight intensity in San Francisco, California ⛅.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your String of Hearts after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
the string of hearts grows pretty quickly and it’s very easy to care for. i’ve had mine since august and she’s been thriving! i decided to place her in a hanging pot in front of my west facing window where she gets plenty of bright indirect light and she seems to love it! i only water her when the soil dries out or her leaves start to feel too soft.
