Caitlin | String of Hearts| Ceropegia woodii | Rosary Vine Houseplant

Caitlin the String of Hearts houseplant is a gorgeous little plant who grows heart shaped leaves down delicate vines.  Grow a cascade or wrap them around your pot, she’s a real talking point!

Care Advice

Native to South Africa, Caitlin is part of the succulent family so doesn’t like her soil to be too wet (ideal for those of us who leave a while between waterings…)     She’s a trailing houseplant and can get up to 90cm long but if that’s too much, I recommend wrapping her around the pot or giving her a little trim.  It’s easy to take cuttings from her and propagate so get ready for some plant babies!       She likes it relatively warm, with some sunlight but not prolonged direct sun as it can burn her beautiful leaves.

All of the houseplants in my shop are named after an inspiring woman. This time, it’s Caitlin (pronounced Cat-Lyn) after the fabulous Caitlin Moran.  Her book ‘How to Build a Girl’ is a hilarious triumph and I highly recommend reading it.  After you buy this plant.

When your plant arrives, here vines will be all coiled up in the package – this is how all hanging plants are shipped – it’s the best way to protect them.  Gently unravel her and let the stems hang for a few days before trying to detangle/reposition them so not to cause too much stress.  You will get some leaf loss but not to worry, she’s a speedy grower!

Good news!  String of Hearts are widely considered to be non-toxic to pets.  Try to keep out of reach though, in case your fluffy friend takes a liking to her…

As a small business, customer satisfaction is the most important thing to me.  As carefully as I pack your order, there is a small chance your items could be damaged during transit.

If soil has been displaced or a few leaves are damaged, give them a trim and your plant should be right as rain in a week or two.  If more severe damage has occurred in transit, please email me within 24 hours with photographs and I’ll be happy to support.

In order to process the refund or re-sending of any damaged item, I will need photographs of the photographic evidence of the item(s) claimed for clearly showing damage to external packaging, internal packaging, parcel label on item and damage to the item, within 7 days.  Without this information and photographs, I will be unable to process your refund or send out replacement products.

Lovely plant! Super speedy delivery! My plant has settled in well. She is keeping me company as I work, and makes me a little happier when doing admin!

I ordered a houseplant from Iris & Co in the last few weeks and was very happy to receive a healthy, beautiful plant within a week of ordering. Gemma was quick to respond and very helpful. I love the info cards included with purchase that include helpful tips on how to care for each plant! Will definitely order again.

Bought a “phoebe” plant as I can’t seem to keep houseplants alive! Delivery was amazing (plant still seemed happy!) and I even had a little freebie which I also love. Phoebe has settled in nicely in her new pot (also from Iris & Co, beautiful). Couldn’t ask for more and would definitely recommend!

I ordered a house plant and pot from Gemma and am really pleased with it so far.  The website pot recommendation was really helpful and also the plant care tips that were emailed to me separately. Gemma delivered the plants herself and the presentation was beautiful. Would really recommend for any gifts (to other or self!).

Bought a beautiful pinstripe calathea that arrived super quickly and in great condition. There was also a hand written note and a care guide which was a very nice personal touch.
