This listing features our beautiful rooted VARIEGATED Senecio rowleyanus 'String of Pearls' in 2/4/6 inch size.
These are rare and we propagate new plants from cuttings. Therefore, most of these are babies and arent long and trailing yet. With proper care, they'll grow fast :).
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". This is the variegated type, therefore, the stems are green and the leaves are both white and green. The plant is super rare and we are the only grower of this type in the US.
The plant is beautiful in a hanging basket, and can be grown inside the house in a bright airy room, or outside in a protected patio. You will need to provide protection from frost.
Variegated pearls are super tricky to ship and grow. They are sensitive, picky, delicate, and dramatic. If we ship them fully rooted, in original soil, there’s a risk of rot. The soil has to be completely dry in order to ship but if the soil gets too dry, they start to shrivel up. If we ship them out of the soil, with roots still attached, there’s a risk of rot.
Check out this article to see the best tips to care for String of pearls plant. As a succulent, String of Pearls is relatively easy to propagate, making propagation a valuable practice for maintaining and enhancing the plant's beauty. In addition to creating new plants, propagation helps to solve s a common issue with trailing plants.

Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered
light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do
NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour
off any excess water after a few minutes.
The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot
area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended
periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
