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.
Hi! Lucky you pet owners, this plant is pet friendly!!
I'm absolutely in love with the string plants, they are gorgeous hanging and sitting plants. Look great with the vines trailing off the edge of something like a bookcase!! String of hearts are super easy to propagate, and grow fast! Expecting long vines soon!!
