One of the cutest plants out there has to be the silver glory string of hearts. How can you not adore the little leaves in the shape of hearts? If you enjoy them, you’ll be glad to know that there are a few different kinds of strings of hearts you can add to your collection.
You may grow each one separately or even combine them in one pot for a gorgeous, colorful combination. Each one offers something distinctive. Most people have the same criteria, while others are more lenient when it comes to light.
Silver glory string of hearts
Another enjoyable string of hearts kind to add to your collection is a string of hearts silver glory. The form of the leaves varies somewhat between the standard and silver glory versions of the string of hearts. The silver glory is more shaped like an apple or a pumpkin, whereas the conventional ones have a more obvious heart form. You’ll notice that, in contrast to the ordinary String of Hearts, the bottom of the heart is a bit more rounded or even rounded up like the bottom of an apple.
These require no extra maintenance and are just as simple to take care of as the common variety. To maintain entirely silver leaves and a purple underside on the plant, proper lighting is essential.
Ceropegia Woodii ‘Silver Glory’
The traditional String of Hearts plant is quite well known for its mottled green and silver leaves, and it is easy to see why given its gorgeous foliage. Other types that produce slightly different variegation, colors, or leaf forms enter the conversation and cause confusion. The purpose of our guide is to help you choose which plants you already have and which ones you need to add to your collection, so keep reading to learn the main differences between the kinds.
The String of Hearts ‘Silver Glory’ is a wonderful new addition to your collection. The thick leaves and burgundy stems of this type are similar, but instead of the traditional heart-shaped leaves, this variety has apple-shaped (or, dare we say, butt-shaped) leaves. Its name is derived from the prominent silver variegation that covers most of each leaf, with just a narrow band of dark green bordering it.
Of all the types, it is the most widely offered and most fairly priced. The leaves on this one may maybe acquire more silver splashes the more light it receives.
Below are two different String of Hearts pots that I have in my home. The other is in bright light while the first is in dim light. Take note of how the leaf of the plant growing in bright light has significantly more silver.
Care of silver glory string of hearts:
Silver Glory String Of Hearts prefers intense brightness but avoids prolonged exposure to the sun. Your plant will remain fuller and more compact with mottled foliage and less space between the leaves the more intense the light it receives. Depending on the amount of sunlight, an East, West, or South-facing window, with or without blinds, might make a pleasant bright spot inside your house.
When the earth is generally dry in the spring and summer, water your plant well; when the soil is completely dry in the winter, water your plant. Keep in mind that Silver Glory String Of Hearts won’t tolerate excessive moisture in the soil. Avoid keeping the soil too wet or soggy since Silver glory won’t accept it. A good sign to check for is leaves that appear a little deflated or wrinkled, which might take up to 4 weeks! All types store water in their leaves.
The Ceropegia genus has very low moisture requirements, therefore too much moisture might be harmful rather than helpful. It would be preferable to keep them from misting and to keep them out of any enclosed terrariums. Having said that, they do choose warmer temperatures over colder ones.
Because Silver glory is a fairly low-maintenance feeder, it won’t require fertilizer very regularly. During the growing months of May through August, feed your plant with a diluted liquid fertilizer once a month. Delay feeding your plant over the winter months until it starts to actively develop once more.
They are safe for both humans and animals to use! If you have any curious hands and tongues, you can feel safe leaving these stunners lying around your house.
Propagating of Silver glory string of hearts
You can take cuttings from your plant and replant them in the pot for a fuller, more lush plant. Simply ensure that the node, where a leaf once met the stem is pushed into the soil. And that the plant’s top is exposed to bright light to promote roots. Longer vines can grow new roots and shoots from additional nodes by resting them on top of the soil; the leaves can stay on because they don’t need to be submerged.
