Curio Rowleyanus 'String of Pearls' is a must-have for your succulent garden. One of the most popular trailing succulents in our opinion here at Succy Crafts. Perfect for hanging planters or to add a spilling effect to your succulent arrangements. String of pearls are perfectly round and green and grow on a long thin string-like stem. If planted in your succulent garden they will grow as a ground cover. All succulent lovers should have a pot full of “String of Pearls” in their succulent collection.
Native to: South Africa, Namibia
Hardiness: tender soft succulent - will not tolerate frost
Recommended light conditions: full sun to partial shade
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.

Very healthy little plant. I can't wait to watch it grow.
I was afraid my string of pearls wouldn't survive so I bought in case, they both have survived the shipping and they're still doing good! Haven't noticed any growing yet but they seem to be doing good under my grow light! They arrived in dry soil so I lightly watered them, since then they've grown dry again so I watered them a second time today, hopefully will see some growing and trailing here soon!
Will be fun to watch it delevep
I love it and pray I can keep it healthy!!!
