Senecio rowleyanus

The string of pearls is a viral sensation but not for the inexperienced.

We'll be honest. The string of pearls is one of the cutest plants ever...but people buy it with no previous plant knowledge and kill it. Time and time again we see these confounding customers. This is a wonderful plant but it probably not a first attempt at keeping a plant alive plant. That said, Senecio are easy to look after if you can remember they need lots of light...and much less water than most of us give them. Why not give it a go and see if you have the magic touch?
