3. As I mentioned these babies love good drainage as they aren’t big water drinkers. So I lay a layer of small rocks in the bottom of the pot before placing in the soil.
4. I use a Cacti and succulent potting mix for these and it has good drainage and the soil doesn’t stay too moist. Fill up your little pot with this mix on top of the rocks.
7. And there you have it! a baby chain of hearts. I have grown 5 babies from my mummy plant and all have started out looking like this wee one, and now they are long and lush and growing beautifully. I water about once a week max and just leave them to do their thing. They don’t seem to be too fussy about where they live either. I have one in the sun, one in a darker spot that gets absolutely no direct sunlight and one in a covered area outside and they are all happy chappies.
And here is what this baby looks like now. It is actually almost ready for a trim itself as I can see the kids catching it when they run past! So they thicken up and grow new strands off the sides of the existing ones as well, this just takes a bit more time compared to how quickly they grow in length.
I hope this has helped you! If you know someone who has one just beg, borrow or steal a couple strands and you will have your very own Chain of Hearts costing you a lot less than what it costs to buy one! I will be needing to trim mine so if you live nearby let me know and you can have some of my cuttings!
