Description  

String of Pearls plant looks just as it sounds, with round, succulent leaves carried down long, slender stems. They look more like peas than pearls, but this succulent is definitely a gem. Pot your String of Pearls succulent plant in a hanging basket to show off its trailing strands of bead-like leaves.

Despite its delicate appearance, this unusual succulent house plant is a vigorous grower, quickly creeping across the surface of the pot, then cascading down the side.

Its trailing stems can reach 2-3 ft (60-90 cm). If long stems become straggly, you can cut them off. Poke healthy stem tip cuttings back into the soil to create a full, lush plant

Care

Water thoroughly, then allow to dry out slightly between watering. This plant will not tolerate soggy soil. Cut back on water in winter, watering just enough to prevent the soil from drying out. Feed once a month spring through fall with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted by half.

Landscape Use
Suitable for Container, Rock Garden & Xeriscaping

Danger:

All parts of plant are poisonous if ingested
