The Parachute Plant is wonderful, weird and beautiful.
Like its close relation, the Ceropegia woodii (or Hanging Hearts), the Parachute Plant has strong vines that will trail downwards whimsically if left alone, but they can also be trained to climb with a supportive frame (white frame pictured is included).
The leaves of the Parachute Plant open out and reform like tiny parachutes. Each one is incredibly delicate and bears tiny little hairs at the edges.
The leaves have a mottled skin that gives the plant a half alien; half fairy tale appearance. In their native South Africa, these plants tend to grow on other plants and trees (a group of plants known as epiphytes).
Growing pot size: 12cm diameter.
Excludes ceramic pot.
