This is by far the most adorable plant that I own. I don’t know what it is. Probably the tiny, adorable, super aesthetically pleasing little leaves and vines, mixed with the hanging moss ball I have it planted in. It grows noticeably literally overnight it’s a really exciting plant. I love waking up in the morning and seeing the progress of the teeny little arrowheads uncurling into baby leaves. It also holds its own with the succulents in terms of resilience. I recently moved and had to switch all of my plants from east facing windows to west facing windows, the succulents and angel vine were the only survivors. I’m relatively new to plant care and I have a pretty irregular schedule, I travel somewhat frequently, and this is one of my more forgiving plants. Okay maybe not as forgiving as the succulents, but I do have it planted in a moss pot so the water does evaporate much faster than in a normal pot. It certainly ranks higher than my orchids and African violets when it comes to resilience, though.

P.S. I still HIGHLY recommend the moss planters. They’re a tad pricey but 100% worth it because they are SO GORGEOUS and so perfect for plants that like soil to dry out between waterings. Everyone who sees my moss planters wants to know where I got them - the website is SuperMoss and they have SO MANY awesome shapes sized and even different colors.

Don't let the dainty look fool you. This plant is not as delicate as it looks. It hangs out in various locations in my house and seems to be happy anywhere it goes - even above the baseboard heater hanging in the window.
