How to care for a ceropegia

I have recently purchased this as a houseplant. Care instructions are minimal. Any help would be appreciated.
Can you also let me know where you nursery is, as welive in surrey,and would like to visit



This appears to be a trailing succulent - general care as follows:
Water thoroughly when the compost dries out slightly from spring to autumn. In winter, water infrequently, once every 1-2 months.
Needs fresh air in summer, so near an open window. Likes some sun, but not hot summer sun. Grows better in a shallower pot rather than a deep one, you may need to pot on in spring. No need to mist the leaves.
This particular plant is supposed to be really easy to grow.

Esther, 'Grows on You' is a site for gardeners to chat together and show each other photos of our gardens - also to have a go at answering the many questions posted here each day.

We don't have a Nursery. Only a 'virtual' one, I suppose! LOL.

I missed the second part of that question altogether, Spritz, thank goodness you picked it up - I'm half asleep today... or just even older...
