String of Pearls


Category: Tag:


I am the String of Pearls, a cascading succulent that is perfect for the dreamy look you’re trying to achieve. My vines are slow growing but with a bit of patience and love, my pearl-shaped leaves will be hanging around your home. I am super easy to propagate and care for so I am great for beginners. Showcase me on a tall bookshelf or hang me from the ceiling in a macrame planter to add a contract amongst your other houseplants.

🌱 Care Level – Moderate: String of Pearls (Senecio rowleyanus) requires some attention, especially in terms of watering and light, making it ideal for those with a bit of experience in plant care.
