BloomBox Club Plant Care Hub
(aka Ceropegia Woodii)
I am native to South Africa, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe.
My romantic heart shaped leaves grow in pairs on stems that trail
For me it's a length thing... incredibly I can reach 2-4 Meters in length
I like bright light (with some direct sun) for best color and plenty of leaves.
I have really dramatic flowers which grow to about 3cm in length. The corolla or tube like flower is magenta and white, with 5 deep purple petals at the tip.
Keep me trimmed to promote bushy growth. I don't need much though.
I will give you pleasure all year round.
Keep my soil lightly moist in spring and summer. Water me sparingly in Autumn and winter. Let me dry out between watering. Careful not to overwater me.
I am also known as the Rosary vine. I am pet friendly but may be highly fascinating to cats, so place me in a high position to avoid mauling.
