Variegated String of Hearts

Variegated String of Hearts (Ceropegia woodii variegata)

The string of hearts is a trailing succulent which is relatively easy to care for. The variegated version of the plant can have cream or pink colouring amongst the standard green colour. As with most succulents, it does well in full sun, and will survive easily inside. Do the string of hearts grow fast? Absolutely! The variegated string of hearts growth rate is very fast when it has enough sunlight. Remember that they like to dry out between waterings, and it is always better to under water rather than over water.
