String of Pearls

Senecio rowleyanus

Regular price £23.00 £0.00

This much sought after String of Pearls, possibly the most delicate succulent plant there is. They have long spindly tendrils, lined with fleshy bead-like fronds. 

I am easy to grow with small, spherical leaves that look like a string of pearls (hence my name!).

Although beautiful, it can be a little fussy when it comes to care. It likes its soil on the dryer side as it is very vulnerable to rot and it needs to be in a consistently warm, bright spot. In winter, when less light is available, reduce watering to an absolute minimum. 

Growing pot size: 15cm plus hanging hook. We advise buying a larger decorative pot size as the lip of the hanging pot makes it slightly bigger

Overall plant height including growing pot: 20-25cm

Pets: Keep away from nibbly pets

Useful to know:

Origin

I am from Southwest Africa

Height/Growth

I'm fast growing, and my tendrils could grow as long as 1m.

Light

Keep me in a bright room but don't like me get much direct sun.

Water

Water me well when soil is completely dry, but make sure I never sit in water. Ideally water at the bottom of the pot instead of the top of the soil.

Temperature

Keep me above 13°C and keep me away from draughts and open windows. I will droop and loose pearls if it gets chilly.

Feeding

Feed me once per month during growing season.

Grooming

Prune any straggly ends to keep me healthy.

Care

To encourage growth, repot me every year or two into a slightly larger pot.

Toxicity

Keep away from children and animals.

Fact

Although I am supremely delicate, I am actually a succulent.
