Know more about Senecio Rowleyanus

Senecio Rowleyanus are succulent plants native to Africa with a beautiful look. String of Pearls is a drought-tolerant plant that stores water in its rounded leaves that reminds us of small pearls making it sensitive to water, so avoid overwatering it.

Despite its delicate appearance, this unusual succulent plant is a vigorous grower, crawling quickly across the surface of the pot and then cascading down the side. Its stems can reach 60-90 cm.

String of Pearls is generally used as a hanging plant. If so, it is important to make sure that the light reaches the top of the plant and not just the bottom, or it will rot.

Senecio Rowleyanus care guide

Senecio Rowleyanus is a succulent plant that grows fast and healthy in bright conditions and does well if the sun hits the plant directly only a bit. The best light conditions for a Senecio Rowleyanus are the ones similar to the outdoor's shade.

One of the best indoor places for a string of pearls is next to a north or east-facing window, because it will receive morning sun and bright light.

If you have a south or west-facing window, you should filter the light or place it a bit far from the window because the afternoon sun will burn it out.

Independently where you place it, make sure the light hits the top of your String of Pearls
