Marvel at the incredible parachute-like, yellow-lime green flowers that adorn this fleshy creeper, which is native to northern KZN, Mozambique and Swaziland. Related to the more commonly known "String of Hearts", the heart-shaped fleshy foliage of the Parachute Plant will quickly show off your advanced plant knowledge, by taking the usual, once step further.

Luckily, Ceropegia sandersonii is a super-easy care house plant, that will happily wind its way around any surface that's presented. Given that it flowers all year round, you'll surely be thrilled by this floral perk too.

FUN FACT: Your Parachute Plant traps insects that enter through the "windows" in its petals. Once thoroughly covered in pollen, this clever houseplant will only release the insect on it's pollination mission once the flower reaches the end of its life, and the fine hairs that trap the insect, are weakened.
