Ceropegia woodii, also known as String of Hearts, is a delicate and beautiful plant that can thrive in a terrarium with the right care. Here are some tips for growing String of Hearts in a terrarium:

  • Choose the right terrarium: String of Hearts needs a terrarium that provides high humidity and bright, indirect light. A glass terrarium with a lid can help to trap moisture and create a humid environment.

  • Use well-draining soil: String of Hearts prefers well-draining soil that retains moisture without becoming waterlogged. Use a mix of peat moss, perlite, and sphagnum moss to create a soil mixture that drains well.

  • Keep the soil slightly moist: String of Hearts does not like to be too wet, so allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, and be sure to allow excess water to drain away.

  • Provide bright, indirect light: String of Hearts needs bright, indirect light to thrive. Place the terrarium in a location that receives bright, filtered light, but avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the plant.

  • Maintain high humidity: String of Hearts needs high humidity to thrive, so it is important to maintain a humid environment inside the terrarium. You can use a humidifier, a pebble tray, or mist the plant regularly to increase humidity.

  • Fertilize occasionally: String of Hearts does not need to be fertilized often, but you can use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer once a month during the growing season to promote growth.

  • Provide support: String of Hearts is a trailing plant that can grow quite long, so it may need support as it grows. You can use small stakes or hooks to help the plant climb and trail.

With proper care and attention, Ceropegia woodii (String of Hearts) can thrive in a terrarium and make a beautiful addition to your indoor garden.
