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

Aloe Vera

1" STARTER PLANT *Terracotta pot in photo sold separately. Aloe vera is grown for its succulent leaves which have a variety of culinary and medicinal uses. The leaves contain a clear gel that's a popular home remedy. According to the Mayo Clinic, this substance may shorten the healing of first- and second-degree burns and promote wound healing. Perennial in zones 9+, aloe is typically grown as a houseplant since it won't overwinter in cooler climates. Very little water is required. These drought-resistant plants grow best in hot, dry areas and excessive water could cause them to rot. Water regularly but allow soil to dry out before watering again. During the winter months, water only enough to keep the leaves from shriveling.
