Selene, our String of Spades 'Mini Star' or Ceropegia Woodii 'Mini Star', is a new variation that you may or may not have come across. Selene is very similar in shape to the Spencer, our String of Spades, although her leaves are a touch smaller.
Native to South Africa, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe, Selene would happily live outside even with the hot temperatures - in the UK she's best left indoors! Her stems can grow very very long, so put her somewhere high to watch her trail!
Selene, String of Spades 'Mini Star' - Small
Selene 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
