String of Pearls 

String of Pearls

Senecio rowleyanus, native to Namibia, Africa, has pendant stems to 3' or more with unusual round "leaves" giving the impression of a "string of pearls". Both the stems and leaves are green. The plant is beautiful in a hanging basket, and can be inside the house in a bright airy room, or outside in a protected patio. Bright light with ample airflow is recommended therefore outdoor in the shade is preferable. Protect from frost.

The tightly packed leaves are arranged in a spiral pattern, forming columnar rosettes up to 8 inches tall. Haworthia Reinwardtii produces offsets freely to form a mat. In spring, the mature rosettes produce white flowers on thin, long stems.
