Unlike Hetty our String of Hearts, Spencer has spade-shaped leaves, which is why they’re sometimes called the ‘heartless Ceropegia’.
Formally named Ceropegia Woodii Super Durban, Spencer is native to South Africa, Swaziland and Zimbabwe, and will happily live outside even with the hot temperatures - in the UK he’s best left indoors! His stems can grow very very long, so put him somewhere high and watch it trail!
Spencer, String of Spades - Medium
Spencer prefers bright indirect light, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight wouldn’t go a miss.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
