Ceropegia woodii


My string of hearts have been doing well, as you can see in one pot but the other has the white bulbs showing. I have pulled some out but haven’t had luck in their survival. Unsure as to how to get it looking healthy again

Such odd little plants!

I love this plant, otherwise known as Hearts Entangled, or Ceropegia woodii.

The little tubers indicate that it’s happy – they don’t form until it’s established.

They need particular care, such as thorough watering with tepid water, but then almost completely drying in between.

Too much water is a killer!

Could this be what’s happened? I would just trim off the dried out looking stems, put it on ignore in a bright out of the way place, and let nature take its course.

The way yours looks it could be a slightly variegated form, which are always a bit more sensitive to everything, including too much sun, too much water, etc.
