String of pearls PLANT CARE
Light: The string of pearls prefers high levels of bright indirect sunlight.
Watering: The fleshy pearl like leaves store water so this plant is very tolerant of drought and should be left to dry out completely in between waterings. Be careful not to over water as it can be prone to root rot if left to sit in too much moisture.
Climate: Prefers warmer room temperatures.
Feeding: A slow release fertiliser can be used in spring.
Growth: This is a reasonably fast growing plant with the long beaded tendrils reaching an ultimate length of up to one metre if kept in optimal conditions. To create a dense plant, prune regularly and discard any dried stems.
Toxicity: This plant is mildly poisonous if ingested so it is important to keep it away from children and pets.
Care: The most common problem with this plant is that it can be very prone to root rot so be sure to avoid overwatering.
