What other plant parents say
BOTTOM WATER ONLY , water 2-3 weeks, leave by the window, don’t let your pets near it. i love my string of pearls but you need to pay attention to them or else they will die rapidly. pain in the ass …
i don’t have too too much experience with it but for me it seems to be taking a long time to grow, i’ve heard of it dying easily but i’ve had no problems with that it seems rather sturdy
It grows like crazy. I got mine less than a month ago and it gave more than 15 leaves
I started propagating a piece of her last week at it’s started rooting in three days
It’s very hard to underwater but very easy to over water
I wish I bought it already big pretty slow grower
impossible to keep alive

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.

To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Senecio String of Pearls after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
