Ceropegia woodii

String of Hearts

This product has no reviews yet.  Write a Review

This stunning evergreen succulent is a trailing vine that can spread up to 4 meters in length and 10cm in height. The leaves are shaped like hearts (hence the name) and are deep green with variegated silver markings. The stems are wire-thin and pinkish.

Discovered in 1881 by John Medley Wood of Durban Botanic Gardens hanging from rocks in Natal at an altitude of 1800 feet! He sent it to Kew and its trailing habit and tolerance of neglect led it to becoming an ideal plant for hanging pots.

It also has water storing tubers, making it virtually drought-resistant. Very easy to grow on from cuttings.
