Rosary Vine

Ceropegia woodii

Rosary Vine Plant Features

Rosary vine, also called string of hearts, is a beautiful, easy-care houseplant for hanging baskets. This succulent earned its name because it has gray-green, heart-shaped leaves that are veined in silver. It's striking no matter where you display your rosary vine. 

The silvery leaf variegation makes rosary vine a striking choice for metallic-silver or black hanging baskets.

Rosary Vine Growing Instructions

Grow rosary vine in medium light for best effect. This easy-care houseplant can grow in brighter spots, as well, and can even take direct sun on its leaves.

A low-water succulent, you can let the rosary vine's soil dry between waterings. It holds up well to neglect, so you don't have to worry about it if you forget to water from time to time. 

Rosary vine doesn't really need fertilizer, but if you wish, you can fertilize it in spring and summer. Use a houseplant fertilizer and be sure to follow directions on the packaging. 

Note: Rosary vine is not intended for human or animal consumption.
