String of Hearts Seed Pods

If you are searching for string of hearts seed pods then before that let me tell you this plant is very popular because of its heart shaped leaves that we didn’t see quite often in any plant. Some people call it Chain of Hearts and others use its scientific name Ceropegia Woodii and did you know this plant also comes from African region because there are so many diverse forests most plants are native to to that.

String of Hearts Seed Pods are seeds that grow in this plant when it matures & these seeds appear to be fuzzy white feathers and it has a seed attached to it. Seeds in the chain of hearts can be propagated and yes it will take time as seeds first germinate then make roots and stem leaves. It is also important to give them the right environment like in initial days they need moisture so you would need to put a plastic over the top of the pot that way it will retain moisture which will help seed to sprout early.

So you need 2-3 seeds and a well drained potting mix , I suggest succulent soil mix that works great on semi succulent vine plants. Now just put the seeds inside the soil , don’t put very deep , just drop the seed on the top layer and put some soil in it. 

Now we can check and see how many days it can take to germinate seeds. That’s it.
