I’ve had this guy for over a year now. He seems to like his home and grows rapidly in the sun. He seems to require a lot of water but I love the way his pearls fall. Sometimes it grabs onto nearby pl…
This plant can grow super long and is particularly pretty in a hanging pot! Just make sure you don’t overwater since it is a succulent. Overall, this plant is just super cute!
In the span of a month this plant gave me four new vines 2+ inches each!! It honestly impressed me how fast this plant grew as I was told it is a very slow grower
This beautiful plant no longer looks like this, I am not sure what I did wrong but luckily I was able to save a piece before it completely died. Starting over!:(
This is my second batch of pearls. My first set, I drowned. These pearls seem to be a little more picky than my other strings. Hopefully these grow much better.

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your String of Pearls after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
