RATING: Medium care level - String of Pearls house plants can sometimes be a little tricky to care for.

Latin name Senecio Rowleyanus, better known as ‘string of pearls’ get its name from their green, circular ‘pea-like’ leaves that quickly grow in a hanging fashion. This succulent is part of the aster family, which are typically native to southwest Africa where they grow along the floor while being shaded by taller plants, meaning that they love dry atmospheres while being out of direct light.

These plants’ little leaves hold pods of water inside, which allows them to be drought resistant, giving them their succulent-like care. The Senecio Rowleyanus is sought after for its long stems and ability to produce small white flowers in spring.
