String of Buttons Plant Description
Crassula Perforata is a small shrub succulent plant with light green leaves that grow stacked and vertically. The stems grow long and eventually become top heavy and trail over. This makes it perfect to plant all on its own in a hanging basket or as a filler and spiller for your succulent arrangements. If given enough sun the margins of the leaves will become red. Tiny clusters of flowers will grow between June and October that will attract hummingbirds, bees and butterflies to your garden.

Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Be sure to empty the water that runs into the saucer, succulents do not like to sit in water. Then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.
Watering Needs Outdoors: In the Summer water your succulents every two weeks, by soaking them and letting them dry before watering again. In the Winter water your succulents once a month.
