String of Hearts Care Tips
- The String of Hearts loves bright light! It will also thrive with some direct sunlight, as long as it’s not throughout the day.
- Because it’s a succulent, it likes a bit of dryness so, let the soil dry out completely before re-watering. This plant will survive better when underwatered rather than overwatered. Average household humidity is perfect.
- Make sure to remove the plant from your Kokodama before watering and place it back once the water is not dripping from the container.
The ideal temperatures are between 18 and 24 ºC, avoid anything under 16 ºC.
- During the growing season, feed it with a half-strength fertiliser.
- If you notice that the roots are growing too large for its pot, it’s time to replace it with a larger one. Best done in the spring using a succulent cactus well-draining soil mix.

Who is the Hanging Hearts?
The Ceropegia Woodii is one of those plants that go dormant in the colder seasons. It will grow slower or stop completely. This is completely normal, so there’s no need to worry. What you do need to do is reduce the amount of water, still allowing the soil to completely dry in between. Normal growth will resume when Spring arrives.
Although more rarely with houseplants, the Hanging Hearts can produce little rose-coloured flowers during Spring and Summer.
