English name:Parachute Plant
Latin name:Ceropegia Sandersonii
About me:I am a tough succulent with large parachute-like flowers, hence my common name.
Useful to know:
I am native to South Africa and Mozambique.
My stems can grow to 2m in length. I can climb or be left to trail from a basket.
I like bright indirect light to part shade but no direct sunlight please.
Water me every 7-10 days in spring and summer, leave my soil to dry during autumn and winter between waterings.
Room temperatures of 16-24°C are perfect. I don't like cold draughts!
A half strength fertiliser during spring and summer every few weeks will be enough for me.
I don't need much in the way of grooming, jusy keep my leaves free of dust.
I am perfectly safe for pets and children.
I am a recipient of the RHS Award of Garden Merit in 2017, a mark of quality awarded since 1922.
