CEROPEGIA WOODII (string of hearts)These are one of my favourite pot plants. The elegant heart shape leaves are pink on the back & green and grey (almost silver) on the tops. Needs plenty of light to enhance these colours. Toward the end of summer the plant produces mauve/pink funnel shaped flowers. The vines can be allowed to trail or trained around a support. Two or three plants put into one pot make a lovely display. Or try adding to an outdoor hanging basket amongst the summer bedding plants. CARE: Ceropegia woodii need full sun to partial shade with some protection from the hot midday sun. The temperature should never go below 60° F in winter. Water carefully, and allow soil to dry in between watering's. Fertilise monthly from May to August with a balanced fertiliser diluted to ½ the strength recommended on the label. From November to March, water sparingly; do not fertilise during this rest period. The plant does best if crowded, so repot only when necessary. Repotting is done in April before new growth starts. Propagation: Ceropegia woodii is propagated by cuttings, by small tubers that are produced at the base of the leaves, and by seed. .
