Senecio rowleyanus or String of Pearls is a succulent known for its bead-like leaves that are shaped like little peas or "pearls" that are attached on a string. Their foliage drips down in long tendrils and makes a great hanging plant or looks nice and adds some fun texture when it's displayed cascading off a shelf.
Size: This plant is in a 4'' pot.
Light: This plant prefers to be in bright, indirect light.
Water: String of Pearls are very sensitive to overwatering. Watering schedules are dependent on light but generally, we recommended amount is once every two weeks. We suggest you test that the soil is dry at least 1'' down before watering. During winter, they'll need even less water so you may cut it back to once every 3 weeks depending on the conditions.
Humidity: Does not need excess humidity.
Temperature: These do well with common indoor home temperatures of 65-80 F.
Soil: These plants are succulents and need well-draining soil that would be in a Cacti & Succulent potting soil mix or you could use 3 parts potting soil and 1 parts sand.
Fertilizing: Too much fertilizer can kill a String of Pearls so we recommend fertilizing just during the growing season once every month with a diluted fertilizer.
Flower: String of Pearls bloom small white flowers with radial symmetry. To encourage flowers, reduce watering in the winter and keep the plant in a consistent temperature of around 60 F. Cooler and dry conditions during late Fall into Winter often promote around 1 month of blooming during the Spring or Summer.
Toxicity: The sap is toxic to animals & humans if ingested so please keep your String of Pearls away from young children and pets.
