This South African native vine features gorgeous, small, waxy, purplish silver leaves in the shape of hearts. Once established, it will also produce flowers throughout the year.
They're generally considered to be easy care plants and look beautiful trailing from a suspended hanging basket or adorning a shelf and falling over the edges. Just divine!
To make them grow, you need light. Bright indirect light that hits the top of soil as well as the leaves. Without decent light, they will not grow well. Keep away from a northern window as the direct harsh sun will burn the leaves.
Water moderately. Chain of Hearts like to be kept on the dry side so make sure the soil is dry to touch before watering again and in winter cut right back to once every 2-3 weeks. One of the reasons Chain of Hearts prefer to dry out between watering is due to the tubers they grow in their roots. They look like little potatoes, but are in fact their water stores.
