String of Hearts Plant Care

String of Hearts

It's easy to see how String of Hearts get their name after you see their long trailing vines covered in beautifully variegated heart-shaped leaves. Keep these plants in bright, indirect light, else you might see large empty gaps between leaves. Put this succulent-like plant in a hanging basket and watch as it cascades over the sides.

Plant Type: Cactus & Succulent
Cacti and succulents are known for their thickened, fleshy parts that function as water storage. These hardy and low-maintenance plants need little to no attention.

Plant Feature: Low-Maintenance
These are plants that you do not have to water too often and are excellent in various lighting conditions. This makes them perfect for any room in your house.

Light Care: Medium-High Light
Plants that require medium to high light will grow best in sunny spots where they can receive filtered or direct sunlight. They make the perfect plants for any well-lit room in your house.

Water Care: Low - Medium Light
These plants perform well under low to medium light conditions. Place them in a room with a minimal light source or far from sunny windows, and they’re good to go.

Fertilizer Care: Low Fertilizer
These plants would appreciate a regular application of fertilizers during the growing season. They aren’t heavy feeders, and feeding at low rates is enough for these low-fertilizer plants to grow well.

Zones: 10-12

Plant Care Tips:
String of Hearts bring a unique look, with their incredibly long vines with heart-shaped leaves. These succulent-like plants prefer bright-indirect light and dryer soil. When repotting or propagating cuttings, we recommend using our arid cactus and succulent mix.

String of Hearts are found in southern Africa, native from Zimbabwe to eastern South Africa.
