The Ceropegia armandii succulent does best in bright indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, but too much will cause the leaves to burn. It also does well in medium light, but avoid low light conditions as this will cause the plant to become leggy and not flower.
The Ceropegia armandii succulent prefers a well-draining soil that is slightly acidic. The ideal soil should have a pH of 5.5 to 6.5 and should be composed of equal parts potting soil, coarse sand, and perlite or pumice. This succulent also likes its soil to be kept on the dry side, so make sure not to overwater it!
The Ceropegia armandii succulent is a low-maintenance plant that requires minimal watering. It should be watered only when the soil is completely dry, and then it should be given a deep soak. Make sure to allow the soil to dry out between waterings, as this succulent does not like wet feet. With this method of watering, your Ceropegia armandii will thrive!
The ideal humidity conditions for the Ceropegia armandii succulent are 40-50%. This is a moderate level of humidity, so it's important to keep an eye on your environment and make sure that it stays within this range. You can do this by using a hygrometer or simply misting the plant occasionally with water.
