Flowers for Valentines Day
String of Hearts
Plant - Rosary Vine
If you want to get someone something for Valentine's Day besides flowers, see if you can find a String of Hearts plant.
It is more like a vine actually, and we call it the Sweetheart Vine, otherwise called the Rosary Vine.
It is one of a hundred species of household plants belonging to the Hoya family.
It has long trailing threadlike stems with leaves in pairs that are heart shaped 2/3 of an inch long.
Small flowers will grow on it, but are of little consequence; the heart leaves being the principle interesting thing about it.
Little tubers form from the stems and are used to set out new plants. Start one in an exotic pot and place in low light intensity with good in a warm place humidity like a shelf, or they work great in a hanging basket scheme.
