Variegated String of Pearls
Variegated String of Pearls (Senecio or Curio rowleyanus f. variegatus) is a cutie that looks like colorful peas. String of Pearls is a well-loved favorite but its variegated form is a cut above. Its bead-like leaves are mottled with cream, green, and sometimes even pink! The thin, string-like stems can cascade several feet. This species is native to South Africa where it grows as ground cover in the shade of rocky outcroppings.
This plant is fully rooted in a 2" plastic pot.
String of Pearls tends to like a bit more water than most succulents. Only water when the top of soil is dry; a slight wrinkling of the leaves indicates the plant is ready for water. It is a member of the Aster family and produces pom pom-like flowers that smell of cinnamon.
