This trailing Othonna capensis is super pretty and will delight everyone who sees it! So delicate, this hanging houseplant is a wonderful soft green with ruby red stems that give it a lovely eye-catching look. Unusually for tropical plants, String of Rubies likes to be in direct sun - in fact this will bring out the amazing purples and reds of its stems.
Ruby Necklace Plant will look fantastic perched on top of a dresser or on a shelf, bringing a splash of rainforest colour to your rooms. It’s a really attractive little hanging houseplant and really easy to care so you don’t need to give it a lot of attention.
As a gift, this would be a wonderful surprise! We’ll include a free, handwritten card if you just note your message at the basket stage of checkout. We won’t leave in the paperwork either!
