What other plant parents say
Likes lots of light! Not direct but definitely needs a well lit spot. It is loving its spot in my kitchen and is thriving with tons of new growth. It’s a beauty to look at and one of my favourites!!
Grows pretty quickly but sometimes the new growth is small, try giving it more sun. The plant does look cuter on Instagram tbh. But maybe my conditions aren’t super ideal for it. Still like it tho.
I love my string of hearts, keep in mind that they have short roots, so they do not like deep pots. Give them a lot of sunlight and they’ll reward you with long trailing leaves. ❤️
Given as a 5 inch cutting from my sister and in under 2 years it has grown over 5f feet! They are so delicate looking but can take a lot of neglect! Perfect for any beginner!
Totally killed this plant before i knew how to take care of it but then managed to bring it back from the dead. Love the little heart leaves:
It’s very satisfying to watch grow! Daily progress especially if it’s sunny out, you can’t go wrong! Good licking killing this bad boy
So cute! Tiny heart leaves that grow in couplets and tiny purple flowers bloom when the plant is happy
Grows super quick and you can make it fuller by adding your propagations back to the mother plant
I love the shape and how easy it is to grow!
Beautiful plant with stunning color!

String of Hearts needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.

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.
