Chain of Hearts

by Suzi Tehan

LIGHT:  Bright light with some direct sunlight, this will encourage colour in the leaves. 

WATERING:  From Spring to early Autumn keep the soil just moist, then restrict the water intake during the cooler months so that the soil becomes almost dry. 

NUTRIENT:  During the growing period use a fertilizer low in nitrogen once a month.  Do not feed during winter. 

TEMPERATURE & HUMIDITY:  Normal room temperature of around 18 degrees.  If the temperature does get too low it can damage the plant.  Humidity can be kept moderate. 

SIZE:  These are trailing plants and are generally grown in hanging baskets.  The stems can grow up to 2 m in length. 

BOTANIC NAME:  Ceropegia Linearis Subsp. Woodi
