Highly sought after and extremely popular with collectors of houseplants and succulents alike, the Variegated String of Hearts is one of those plants that just has a certain something about it. Growing luscious soft green, creamy-edged leaves under average conditions, the variegated string of hearts can become even more heart-like the more light you give it, as this causes its leaves to gain a vibrant pink hue!

The trailing vines of the variegated string of hearts will continue to grow as long as you let them and you’ll know this plant is happy when its leaves begin to form a dense curtain. With the added benefit of being a fast grower that’s easy to propagate, you’ll have no shortage of adorable housewarming gifts and windows full of pink, heart-shaped leaves (thus the name variegated string of hearts). 

Available in a 4.5-inch hanging basket
