String of Pearls is a beautiful, cascading succulent that will add that little quirk to any house or garden.
Pot Size: 16cm Hanging Pot
They like bright indirect light, if they are outdoor they like shaded area with some bright indirect light, if they’re indoor they like to be near the window with strong natural light. They don’t like direct sunlight, this causes them to burn extremely quickly.
Choosing the perfect size of the pot is an important factor for String of Pearls to grow well. The pot needs to be big enough to let them fill to the brim, as if the pot is too big for the plant then the soil will stay wet for too long and the pearls resting on that wet soil will get rot. String of Pearls have very shallow roots so they don’t need a deep pot.
Another important thing is to make sure the crowns of the pearls stay at the same level with the top of the pot or at most 2cms lower than the top, otherwise the aeration will decrease, together with wet soil, the crowns and stems of the plant will get rot easier.
String of Pearls are very sensitive to overwatering, so make sure that you give them just enough water. Recommended amount is once every two weeks. One tip to make sure you don't overwater your plant is to check if the soil is 1cm dry at the to of the pot before the next water. During winter time, cut back watering to once per month.
