Senecio Rowleyanus – String of pearls


This much sought after String of Pearls, possibly the most delicate succulent plant there is. They have long spindly tendrils, lined with fleshy bead-like fronds.

It can be a little fussy, so be sure to keep the soil on the dryer side as its vunerable to rot and in a consistantly warm, bright spot. In winter when less light is available watering needs to be reduced to an absolute minimum.
