String of Pearls


Senecio Rowleyanus, aka String of Pearls, String of Beads or Rosary, is a flowering plant in the daisy family Asteraceae. It is an all-time favourite for the way its bead-like leaves can cascade several feet. Its small green bubbles grow along a slender stem, just like a beautiful pearl necklace.

They love direct suns, but they'll also do well in indirect lights. Don't switch them suddenly from indirect to direct, they'll get a sunburn. Introduce them to direct sun gradually during the warm months.
The minimum light requirement for them is 0 - 3 feet away from the nearest light source. A good bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window.
They like the soil to be completely dry before the next watering. That usually takes about two weeks in an average home environment. It may vary depends on your environment and light condition, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water like floppy, droop, or soft leaves.
Their humidity requirement is low. So do not mist them or put them in an aquarium.
The string of Pearls propagates via clippings. Allow the cut end to callous over and insert into the dirt.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
