  • It does not require high humidity.

Light

  • The chain of hearts plant appreciates bright, indirect sunlight, but it can do well in a low light setting.
  • Lower light will result in less contrast in the leaf variegation.
  • Additionally, a low light setting will cause the backs of the leaves to take on a purplish hue.

Soil

  • Use a cactus potting soil mix or combine a regular potting mixture of soil with sand.

Fertilizer

  • During the growing season (spring to midsummer) use a balanced fertilizer for houseplants (Follow packaging instructions)
  • Stop fertilizing in midsummer and allow the plant to wind down for its semi-dormant period during the autumn and winter.
