String of Hearts Care 101

The String of Hearts can be grown outdoors as a sprawling ground cover, in rock gardens, or for cascading down walls during the summer months or even all year round, given that it lives in a warmer climate (15 degrees C or above)

They can grow up to 3m long, so if you're growing this baby indoors, be sure to hang this plant somewhere high so you can witness the true beauty of a cascading string of hearts.
