This is a very easy species to grow, just as easy as Ceropegia woodii. It is a trailing variety which will sometimes climb; it will grow very long, but do not be tempted to cut it back or you will lose the flowers. The flowers will appears when the plant has reached a length of about 1.50 metre. The flowers are about 2cm long and do not stand out. The leaves are long and thin, hence the name linearis. If you grow a stem horizontally, for instance on a potting table, the nodes will send out roots if they touch the soil. This is an easy way of propagating the plant, which is useful as linearis seed is rarely produced.

It is a tuberous-rooted species and the tubers will form from cuttings, as is true of all tuberous-rooted ceropegias. It will grow in most soils and requires only a little bit of heat (5-10°C) in the winter. In the summer, it prefers to be grown in a shady place, but temperatures can be quite high without any problem.
