String of Pearls (Senecio rowleyanus) is a unique and eye-catching trailing succulent known for its cascading stems adorned with small, spherical leaves that resemble green pearls. This plant requires specific care to thrive. Here are some guidelines:


  • Provide bright, indirect light for your String of Pearls. It appreciates plenty of light but should be protected from direct sunlight, which can scorch its delicate leaves. A location near a window with filtered sunlight or bright, indirect light is ideal.


  • Maintain a warm environment for your String of Pearls. It prefers temperatures between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C). Protect it from cold drafts and temperature fluctuations.


  • Allow the top inch (2.5 cm) of the soil to dry out before watering. String of Pearls is highly sensitive to overwatering and can be prone to rot if the soil remains too wet. Water sparingly but thoroughly when you do water, and ensure that the pot has good drainage.


  • String of Pearls can tolerate average indoor humidity levels, but it appreciates slightly higher humidity. If the air in your home is dry, use a humidifier or mist the plant occasionally to increase humidity.


  • Use a well-draining succulent or cactus potting mix. Adding perlite or sand to the mix can improve drainage.


  • Repot your String of Pearls when it becomes root-bound or outgrows its pot. This may be needed every 1-2 years. Choose a slightly larger pot with good drainage and fresh potting mix.


  • Feed your String of Pearls every 6-8 weeks during the growing season (spring through early autumn) with a diluted succulent or cactus fertilizer. Avoid fertilizing in the winter when the plant's growth slows down.


  • Trim leggy or unhealthy stems to maintain the plant's appearance and encourage bushier growth.

Pests and Diseases:

  • String of Pearls is relatively resistant to pests, but it can occasionally attract common houseplant pests like mealybugs and aphids. Inspect your plant regularly for pests and treat them promptly. Good airflow can help prevent fungal issues.
