Comments: A prized plant for many collectors, this stunner displays both beautiful foliage and interesting flowers. Ceropegia woodii will develop tubers in the soil that can get quite large over time so it is important to plant into a container that will not hinder the eventual transplant later on. It can also develop ‘bulbils’ along the vining stems that appear as bulbous growths. These are completely normal and act as a  water storage device for the plant.

Toxicity: Safe.
