The Senecio rowleyanus, commonly called String of Pearls, is part of the Asteraceae family, native to South Africa. This very sought-for and unique succulent will adorn any luminous space where you will set it!

The Senecio rowleyanus produces long and slender stems from which spring small spherical leaves. The result resembles a graceful cascading string of pearls, thus its nickname!    

MAINTENANCE

To be happy inside, the Senecio rowleyanus requires very good indirect light, even direct sun during winter. It will need to be watered when its soil is completely dry from top to bottom, which could correspond to every 2 to 4 weeks depending on the season and the humidity level of the room. Here is a little tip to determine if it is the case: delicately insert a thin wooden stick all the way down to the bottom of the pot. If the stick is wet or damp as you pull it out, your Senecio rowleyanus does not need a drink just yet!

When you take possession of your plant, make sure you assess its watering needs. Before you give it a drink the first time, check the soil’s moisture level to verify whether or not it is moist near the surface. It is best to aerate the soil before the initial watering since it is often compacted to avoid shifting during transit. This also allows it to breathe and release moisture.

Rotate your plant periodically in order to encourage an even growth. Cleaning the leaves regularly will stimulate proper photosynthesis. As you wipe the foliage, inspect the leaves on either side to make sure there are no pests.
