Senecio Herreianus "String of Tears" also known as "String of Raindrops" or "String of Beads" is a popular trailing succulent. This plant grows long flexible stems/strands with chubby "Tear" shaped leaves. A delicate leaf window runs through the center of its leaves, this is how the plant absorbs sunlight. A perfect succulent to display in hanging baskets or tall containers to let grow nice and long. Best to keep this plant out of direct sunlight to keep healthy and bright green.

Native to: South Africa, Namibia 

Zone: 9-11

Hardiness: tender soft succulent - will not tolerate frost

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.

String of tears will give you tears

This plant is SO cute! Packaged with love and care! Thank you SO much!!


I am very pleased with my purchase. Arrived a few days early and were definitely larger than I expected. I’ve ordered from another company in the past and the plants were tiny and didn’t survive. These are doing great 👍


Arrived in great shape! Looking forward to planting it when I find perfect pot..

Had a slight mix up on my first order,but was taken care of as soon as I emailed the company. Received my string of tears today and it looked great! Love the packaging and the plants are super healthy. Will definitely order from here again.
