String of Hearts Variegated - 2in


Available In-Store Only

  • The String of Hearts plant likes heat and bright light but doesn't tolerate direct sunlight.

    So make sure to place it near the brightest window possible, or supplement with an LED grow light, and keep the temperature at 80 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit, and 60 degrees Fahrenheit during wintertime.

  • In case you are not sure whether your String of Hearts is getting all the light it needs, one easy way to tell is through its leaves. If you see that the leaves are starting to become pale in color (with less marbling), and at the same time, wider apart than it normally should, then better transfer the plant to a brighter spot to supplement its lighting needs.

    In addition to that, it is important to rotate the plant as well from time to time. This will ensure that all sides of your String of Hearts will get a balanced amount of sunlight and that all sides will have an even color.

  • Since the Chain of Hearts has a succulent-like nature, root rot is most likely to happen, especially when left sitting in wet soil for too long. This, however, can be prevented by giving this plant a good soak of water once a week or whenever the top 2 to 3 inches of the soil is completely dry during its growing season, which happens in Spring and Summer. In the Autumn and Winter months, on the other hand, this succulent will go dormant, and therefore your watering should be cut back to once every 3 to 4 weeks or when the soil feels completely dry through the pot.
