String of Hearts 8cm pot and Hoya Kerrii 6cm pot.

Milton Keynes, GB
String of Hearts: This semi succulent, native to South Africa, Swaziland and Zimbabwe has very pretty heart shaped foliage, hence the name! This is a vine type plant which grows long, wispy trails. A low maintenance houseplant that is great for beginners. Light: To get the best colour and plenty of leaves from your plant provide plenty of bright, indirect sunlight. Water: It can be treated like a succulent so allow it to dry out between watering. During the winter months the plant is dormant so water much more sparingly. Feed: They can be fed at most once a month with a half dose of cactus/succulent fertilizer during their active growth period in May – August. They don't need any fertilizer during winter, their dormant period. Hoya Kerrii: Hoya kerrii is a species of Hoya native to the south-east of Asia. As the thick leaves are heart-shaped, the plant is sometimes named "lucky-heart". Water: Allow soil to dry between watering. Light: Hoya kerrii loves the sun. Treat them like succulents because they love light. As a house plant, your best bet is to place it in the brightest spot you have. P&P: £3.50 extra.
