Ceropegia Wodii

Hi there,

My string of hearts was growing new parts until I decided to move her to a bigger pot (she was in a veeeery small pot) and now these new parts are wilting and affecting the plant! 😱. I also used a very small amount of Baby Bio fertiliser.

What could I do to heal her?

It's best to not fertilize plants when they're newly potted - let them recover and get established in their new pot first.

I wouldn't worry about this too much. What it looks like is that there was very tender new growth when you repotted it, and these delicate shoots are wilting and possibly dying. This won't affect the rest of the plant. Simply trim them off and it will make new growth to replace them once the roots are growing and established.

Don't fertilize it again until it looks like it needs it - these plants have very tuberous roots which store sugars for a later date. Keep it on the dry side until it shows signs of growth.
