String of Pearls, Curio rowleyanus (formerly Senecio rowleyanus) is a trailing plant with delicate, plump spheres (beads, pearls) along its long stems extending up to 90cm over time. It has been potted into a 12cm h x 12cm w glazed ceramic pot. This plant will continue to fill and spill and grow trailing lengths. If they get too long then simply snip 10cm lengths and place on top of cacti succulent soil ensuring leaf nodes are pushed into the soil to propagate more plants.
Water deeply so that the water drains through the hole at base and allow soil to dry out almost completely between waterings. The plant will then draw the water up through its roots and store in its leaves. It is better to underwater than overwater as overwatering can lead to root/stem rot. Too much water and you will notice leaves become transparent and turn mushy, may rot and eventually die. Underwatering will lead to puckered leaves but can be restored with watering.
