Ceropegia woodii Hearts Entangled; 10°C/50°F; South Africa

The leaves of this plant are a mottled grey-green in colour and heart-shaped with a puffed-up succulent appearance. Flowers in autumn are brown and insignificant. Essentially trailing plants, one of the principal fascinations, as the common name suggests, is the way in which the slender trailing stems and leaves entwine around one another. Easily grown in almost any light position where the trails can hang over the sides of the pot. Plants in pots of comparatively small size will produce yards of growth. Water sparingly in winter. To increase, insert individual leaves with a piece of stem attached in small pots filled with moist peat. Grow on in a rich loam-based soil.
