String of Heart plants have (as the name suggests) plump, heart-shaped leaves on long dazzling vines. If conditions are just right, it'll reward you with a trumpet-shaped, purple flower.
Height is measured from the bottom of the plastic nursery pot (please allow a +/-10% variance). Diameter is the nursery pot diameter, so to get a pot that fits, the pot diameter should be bigger.

String of Hearts was discovered hanging from rocks on Groenberg Mountain in Natal, SA, in 1881. Thirteen years later, in 1894, a living plant was sent to Kew Gardens.
String of Hearts can be propagated easily through a number of methods. The simplest method is to propagate the string of hearts from seed tubers of mature plants which can simply be picked off and placed on fresh soil.
Grow string of hearts in bright indirect light, out of direct sunshine. Water regularly in spring and summer, allowing the soil to completely dry out between waterings. Reduce watering in winter, and never let the plant sit in water. Fertilise with house plant fertiliser once or twice a month during Spring & Summer.
String of Hearts was officially collected in 1881 by John Medly Wood. Talk about having the right name for the job!
