Steps to keep String of Hearts alive

Step 1: 

Start by placing string of hearts in an area that has very bright, but indirect light for most hours of the day. A window that faces east or west is ideal, as string of hearts can get all day long sun exposure there.

Step 2: 

Water string of hearts once every other week. To make sure you aren't overdoing it with the water - wait until the soil has dried out completely before watering again. You can guess this by weighing the pot with your hand and if it’s very light, the plant needs to be watered. If you see hearts getting shriveled, the plant is very thirsty, water immediately.

How to revive your String of Hearts

Keep in mind this applies to string of pearls and other strings of succulents as well. You may be nervous about buying a more expensive version of these strings such as the variegated string of hearts and variegated string of pearls and stress about keeping them alive.

A good rule of thumb is to water when the soil is dry and leave it alone. Overwatered string of hearts or pearls tend to rot and turn yellow. Believe it or not, this is the number one killer of strings. Good luck!
