Very interesting and quite different from most vines; heart-shaped silver-spotted leaves of varying sizes and tiny waxy pink-purple flowers on a tangle of stringy vines.
Ceropegia needs a temperature of 50 to 55 F so select its location carefully. Buy your first one and propagate by cuttings rooted in sand or by planting the little tubers that follow flowers on the vines.
Pot rooted cuttings or sprouted tubers in soil rich in humus or leafmold; sand or perlite should be added for good drainage, and peatmoss is beneficial to root systems. Use a complete fertilizer. Grow in filtered or diffused sunlight; water thoroughly, then let become moderately dry before watering again.
C. Barklyi (umbrella-plant) is also fascinating to grow.
