Origin:

Ceropegia Woodii, commonly known as "String of Hearts" or "Rosary Vine," is a perennial succulent native to southern Africa. Its name comes from the Greek words "keros," meaning "wax," and "pege," meaning "fountain," due to the waxy appearance of its flowers.

Description:

Ceropegia Woodii is a highly popular indoor plant due to its charming appearance and easy care. It features long, trailing stems with heart-shaped leaves that are dark green with silver stripes on top. Its flowers are small and tubular, with a pale pink or purple color and intricate details.

History:

The history of Ceropegia Woodii dates back to its discovery in the 19th century in South Africa. Since then, it has gained popularity as an indoor plant worldwide due to its aesthetic appeal and resilience.

Care:

This plant is quite hardy and easy to care for. It prefers bright indirect light and should be kept away from direct sunlight, which can scorch its delicate leaves. It adapts well to normal indoor temperatures and requires well-draining soil to prevent root rot.

Watering:

It's important not to overwater, as Ceropegia Woodii is susceptible to root rot if kept constantly moist. It's recommended to water it only when the top layer of soil is dry, approximately every 1-2 weeks during the summer and reducing watering in winter.

Pruning:

Pruning Ceropegia Woodii is minimal and mainly done to maintain its shape and control its growth. You can trim overly long stems to encourage more compact and dense growth.

Interesting Fact:

An interesting fact about Ceropegia Woodii is its ability to produce small tuberous structures along its stems, called "water-storing tubers." These tubers are an adaptation that allows the plant to store water for periods of drought, contributing to its resilience and ability to survive in adverse conditions.
