Senecio herreanus (String of Watermelon)

A highly sought after variety of the famed 'sting of...' family.

Like it's better known cousin, the string of pearls, the string of watermelons is a plant that sometimes confuses. Give it the best possible light you have (this may be outside) and water it very sparingly and you should have success.
