Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

Plant Type: Indoor Houseplant


Light Requirement: Very bright light and can even handle small doses of sun during the day.


Water Requirement: Because it’s a (semi) succulent, it’s important to prevent overwatering. During the growing season (Spring, Summer, early Fall) when the plant is producing new leaves and maybe even a few flowers, you can water it when the soil is mostly dry. During the dormant season, the plant can completely dry between waterings.


Fertilizer Requirement: Feed monthly with a half-strength of a liquid fertilizer during the growing season.


Container Size: 1″ starter plant, *Terra Cotta pot in photo display sold separately


Bloom Season: Magenta blooms in Spring, Summer, and Fall if in ideal growing conditions and lightly fertilized.


Plant Growth: Trailing.


Plant Color: Variegated: Green/White


Suggested Uses: Indoor containers and hanging baskets


USDA Hardiness Zone: Find Your Zone
9, 10, 11, 12



Special Characteristics:

  • Commonly known as String of Hearts and Rosary Vine.
  • Stores water in its leaves, so a good watering indicator to watch for is the leaves beginning to look a little deflated. Let the soil dry well between waterings.
  • Lightly fertilize during the growing season to promote magenta-colored blooms.
  • Skill Level: Intermediate

Vanilla Bean Orchid

1" STARTER PLANT *Terracotta pot in photo sold separately. Everyone knows the scent and taste of vanilla. But did you know that all vanilla comes from the fruit of an orchid? Of the tens of thousands of orchids known to the world, Vanilla planifolia is the only orchid to produce an edible fruit and what an amazing fruit that has turned out to be… For 300 years, no one was able to get the orchids to bear fruit. Then, in 1836, it was discovered that a miniscule bee (the Melipone) was the sole pollinator of the vanilla orchid. Outside of their native habitat of Mexico, vanilla plant flowers must be hand-pollinated in order to produce the fruit. This means all the vanilla coming from other countries is hand pollinated. You can understand why vanilla is the most expensive spice after saffron!
