Plant Morphology : [Others]: Growth Form: Succulent with trailing growth habit. Habitat: Dry environments. Stem: Stem light purple and glabrous. It is herbaceous and thin. Tubers are produced at the nodes (the portion of stem directly attached to leaves). Foliage: Leaves small (1.3 cm wide, 2 cm long) and cordate (shaped like hearts). The top is green with white or light purple markings, while the bottom is pink or light purple. Flowers: Flowers are vertically oriented, tubular and pink with a small balloon-like base (2 cm long). The lobes at the apex are dark purple with purple hairs. They form arch-like structures over the opening of the flower. Fruits: Fruits are follicles, a type of dry fruit produced from one ovary. Landscaping: This species may be used as a focal plant to attract interest, because the flowers have a unique shape. It is ideal for hanging baskets that could be hung from tree branches or above a patio. Alternatively, consider potting the plant and training it to grow along a small, circular trellis to produce a decorative hoop of leaves. This species will be attractive hung against a wall like a curtain or from the top of a pergola (a type of trellis with vertical posts that support an open set of horizontal rafters). Cultivation: This species is easy-to-grow. It will grow best under full sun, but it can also be grown under semi-shade. This species is prone to basal rot when it is watered too much or the soil becomes waterlogged. Allow the soil to dry before re-watering. For indoor plants, use a soilless or cactus mix with good drainage and feed on a monthly basis with a dilute solution of low nitrogen liquid fertilizer. Plants should be re-potted every 3 years. This species is usually resistant to pests, but it may be attacked by mealy bugs, whiteflies, spider mites and aphids. Propagation: Propagate by division or stem cuttings. For stem cuttings, remove a piece from the tip that contains 2 - 3 nodes by cutting the stem just beneath a node. You can also plant the tubers produced at the nodes of the stem. Etymology: The genus "Ceropegia" is derived from the Greek words "keros" meaning wax and "pege" meaning fountain. These terms refer to the flowers which look waxy and are shaped like fountains. https://florafaunaweb.nparks.gov.sg/Special-Pages/plant-detail.aspx?id=4043
