Scientific Name: Senecio Radicans
Our String of Beads comes in a 20cm Hanging Nursery Pot.
Many a tannie attests that these pearlers "grew in the wild on our farm". No doubt. These South African succulents are not only a favorite at home, their close cousins, the String of Pearls, are a globally trending house plant.
Best placed in a hanging position, the String of Beads will grow trailing strands dotted succulent foliage, which will cascade into a curtain of sheer green beauty.
Please Note: Our Beads are well rooted and established plants, but on receipt may not have branches as long as those depicted in the picture.
Follow these instructions to keep your String of Beads healthy and happy.
Water: Water thoroughly but let the soil dry out almost completely between watering. Avoid overwatering!
Light: Bright light, including moderate direct sunlight - but keep it away from hot burning sun coming through a glass window.
Humidity: No humidity required - do not mist.
Fertilize: Feed the plant monthly in spring and summer with diluted (by half recommended strength) fertiliser
