Plant Features

The String of Pearls plant, scientifically known as Senecio rowleyanus, is a unique and eye-catching succulent that's popular for its distinctive bead-like leaves. These round, green leaves are attached to trailing stems that gracefully spill over the sides of containers, making it an ideal plant for hanging baskets. It's a great choice for adding a touch of whimsy and natural beauty to any indoor space.

For troubleshooting, shriveled or wrinkled pearls often indicates underwatering. While the plant is drought-tolerant, it still requires occasional watering. Root rot is a sign of overwatering. Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings and ensure proper drainage. If the stems become elongated and the pearls are spaced far apart, the plant might not be receiving enough light. Move it to a brighter location but avoid direct, harsh sunlight. Watch out for pests like aphids and mealybugs. Treat with neem oil or insecticidal soap if you notice any infestations.
