How to Care for a String of Pearls Plant
I was recently given this amazing plant as a gift, however I have no idea what it’s called or how to care for it! I really want it to flourish, and am so worried about it dying! It’s already starting to look unwell.
Please help! Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Your plant is a String of Pearls plant, Senecio Rowleyanus. Here are some care tips to help you grow and care for it. Water: This is a succulent plant that stores water in its plump leaves so be careful not to over water. I find that if I allow the green bead -like leaves to get a little flat and then water well, the plant is quite happy. During the winter, when the plant is resting, water even less. Light: A String of Pearls plant likes very bright light and even some morning direct sun. Fertilizer: Feed monthly from April to October with a balanced, liquid plant food diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength. Temperature: A String of Pearls plant likes warm temperatures between 70°-80°F (21.1°-26.6° C). Soil: Use a succulent or cactus potting mix that drains quickly. Flowering: String of Pearls produces tiny, white, fuzzy scented flowers.
