Senecio radicans String of Bananas is a fast-growing succulent with vines that can reach at least 3 feet (90 cm) long. The small, up to 1.2 inches (3 cm) long, green, pointed leaves grow single-file along the cascading stems, with the sides of the leaves partly translucent, allowing sunlight to shine through.
The flowers are small, cinnamon-scented, and white in color.
Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch, then let drain completely. Avoid letting water sit for too long in the soil to prevent rot and fungal diseases. Reduce watering to a minimum in the winter.
Can be toxic to humans and animals.

*** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.
*** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon
arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as
bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for
replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you.
Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
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.

All of my succulents came packaged so well, every time banana, and pearl was still attached to the plant! They are healthy and larger than I thought they would be. I'm thrilled with my purchase of string of bananas and pearls!
I received a 6 inch string of bananas today. It arrived in great shape. It's a very full plant. Once it's settled in I'll repot it since it's already starting to hang over the side of the plastic pot. Another quality plant from Succulents Box.
When I received them they were packed so well that once unpacked there was no damage what-so-ever. My plant is not only beautiful and healthy, but also growing new leaves already! (It's only been a little over a week.)
I am so happy with my plants from succulents Box. They arrived id a very cute box nicely packed. the little "bananas" were piled up on the top and when I gently tugged on them they draped down around pot. They were longer than I had thought they would be. Directions came with them and were very helpful. I love them! I would order from them again.
