Description

Hard to find but easy to care for, the ‘Silver Glory’ String of Hearts needs a home in your sunniest window! The ‘Silver Glory’ is distinguished from its standard and variegated counterparts by it’s steely silver, kidney bean shaped leaves but requires the same type of care. To maintain it’s fully silver color we recommend giving this trailing succulent as much light as possible, even up to direct sunlight. We also recommend keeping an eye on it and giving it a thorough watering once the top leaves begin to shrivel. While all ‘String of Hearts’ varieties are known to be drought tolerant we find them to be rather thirsty, especially in the growing season and would err on the side of more frequent waterings during this period. Since these come in such small pots, try repotting them in something a bit larger then wrapping the vines around the perimeter- this will result in lots of new roots and a fuller plant faster!
