How to prune a hedge in 7 simple steps. This article explains how to prune a hedge in 7 simple steps.
Ceropegia woodii, the chain-of-hearts vine, is an evergreen succulent pendulous vine, popular for hanging baskets. It is very hardy and tolerant of neglect. It grows to 10 cms high, and spills down to 2 to 4 metres in length. It is frost tender, so is suitable for tropical and sub-tropical climates. It can also be grown in temperate areas in a sheltered, warm spot.
Chain of hearts needs a well drained soil, as standing in water may lead to root rot. It likes a partly shaded position. Deeper shade leads to paler coloured foliage, more light deepend the leaf colour.
Propagation is from tip cuttings, and from division.
