MORE INFORMATION

Senecio Rowleyanus, AKA the string-of-pearls or string-of-beads plant, is a trailing, succulent vine and one of the rising stars of social media sharing!

Looking just like a string of green beads, its perfect for hanging baskets or cascading from shelves - the String of Beads appreciates room to trail and is perfectly photogenic.

The pea-sized leaves (which allow for the storage of water while at the same time minimising water loss) are produced on trailing stems which can grow 6090 cm (23 ft).  In its natural habitat, the stems trail on the ground, rooting where they touch and forming a dense mat.

Each rounded leaf has a thin band of dark green tissue on the side known as an 'epidermal window' which allows light to enter and irradiate the inside of the leaf, effectively increasing the area for photosynthesis - a clever plant indeed.

Senecio blooms during the summer with clusters of small white flowers with colourful stamens. The flowers last about a month and are said to smell like cinnamon and other spices to some people.

Easy to grow and low maintenance, like most succulents the string of pearls will tolerate infrequent watering and just a few hours of direct sunlight every day. Good soil drainage is essential though to prevent problems and we recommend that you use a cactus mix when potting.

CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

Several plants together will give the best display, so when long stems become straggly, cut them off and poke the cuttings back into the soil to create a fuller plant.

Care Guide

  • Best grown in bright light with some direct sun in well-draining compost.
  • Keep lightly watered during the growing season (spring to autumn) and cut back in winter, watering just enough to prevent the soil from drying out. Beads that look flat are a sign that the soil is too dry.
  • Take care not to overwater as it will not tolerate soggy soil.
  • As a succulent, the String of Pearls will not tolerate the cold and needs a minimum of 5C being frost tender. It can be grown outside in the summer months, but keep it shaded from the hot midday sun.
  • Plants can be fed once a month during their growing season with a half-strength liquid feed.
