String of Hearts Care

Water your soil when it is about 50% to 100% dry. Make sure to avoid overwatering at all costs. watering may be even less frequent during winter months or in less light.
String of Hearts plants like bright indirect light, but will also tolerate medium indirect lighting conditions.
String of Hearts plants like high humidity, but they also appreciate a misting every once in a while to remove dust from their leaves.
String of Hearts can live in different temperatures, but it prefers warm areas. If it feels cold or dry, it might complain.
Generally, this product is considered to be safe for pets. However, if your pet consumes a lot of this product, they may vomit or feel nauseous.
You can propagate a String of Hearts by taking a cutting from a healthy vine. Cut a section of the vine that is around 5 inches long and make the cut just below the lowest leaf. Remove the lower leaves so you have a clear stem before rooting. You can root the stem directly in moist potting mix that is suitable for cactus or succulents. Try to press only the cut stem into the soil, allowing the remaining leaves to stay exposed and get good air circulation to avoid rotting. Once the roots are a few inches long and you've spotted some new growth, you can properly pot up the whole plant!
