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.

Your plant will be meticulously bubblewrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most 2" plants are shipped in their original plastic pot with soil. Fragile and big 4" plants are shipped bareroot to ensure their safety. When opening your package, some soil may be loose in the box. Plant orders are shipped within 3-5 days depending on availability of the plant. We ship our plants Monday through Friday, all twelve months of the year! If you need your order urgently, please message us so we can upgrade your shipping (additional cost applied).

Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging

We do not ship outside of the continental United States. 

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. Sedums such as Cherry Tart and Lime Zinger are dormant in the winter, i.e. they wilt, start dropping leaves, and look dead. It's simply a survival mechanism that help succulents stay alive over the cold winter and gear up for warmer days ahead.

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.

Great Plants

I love the plants that I bought! After I received them, I subscribed to the monthly box with 4 succulents. They come in amazing packaging, I just wish there was some way to stop the soil from moving around. I have to be careful where I open them as it gets everywhere. Other than that, everything was perfect!

Favorite Succulent

These are my favorite succulents I own. They arrived healthy and vibrant, and are growing rapidly. I've even trimmed down some of the growth to add to other planters, and the clippings are growing well. Love this plant and look forward to purchasing again!

I love this plant! Shipping was quick and it came in such good condition, and was fairly full and grown out. It's doing well, and thriving in its current location in my home. Thank you for this beautiful plant!
