String of Hearts Silver Glory
String of Hearts Silver Glory, aka Ceropegia woodii 'Silver Glory', is a tuberous, trailing, succulent-like plant. Similar to its sister plant, the String of Hearts, this plant also has delicate, heart-shaped foliage, but with a much stronger silver variegation. Its stems can trail up to 12' long in its natural environment, earning this plant many nicknames, such as Rosary or Sweetheart Vine.
They enjoy some direct sun, but they'll also do well in bright, indirect light. It is best to place this plant somewhere where it will receive some nice morning sun, or a couple hours of afternoon sun, and then indirect light the rest of the day.
They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
They like the soil to be completely dry before the next watering. That usually takes about two weeks in an average home environment. It may vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. wrinkly or soft leaves).
Their humidity requirement is low, so do not put them in an enclosed terrarium.
String of Hearts store water in their leaves, so a good indicator to know when to water your plant again is to watch for the leaves beginning to soften and start to look a little wilted. If you want a more full and lush plant, you can take cuttings of the your plant and re-plant them back into the pot! Just make sure there is a node (where the a leaf used to meet the stem) inserted into the soil.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
