Can anyone give me advice on how I can save my string of pearls πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŒΎ shes been looking sad lately )-:
It’s a little hard to tell, but it looks like her soil might be too dense. I would trim off all the excess and dead foliage, then repor to a nice, snug container with LOTS of drainage, into a succulent mix. For my string of pearls I have 1/3 succulent potting mix, 1/3 sand, 1/3 perlite. Then maybe get your hands on some succulent food, and make sure she’s in a spot with lots of indirect light!
I agree with @emmybee. SOP like it bright, so the thinning pearls couls be a result of low light. My SOP thinned out like this when I moved her farther from the window.
Also you could pin the piece hanging from the side in the soil and lightly cover to encourage rooting.
I screen shot a comment I read earlier from @plantplantplant that is a perfect visual for the pinning I was referring to. Most people use bobby pins but I have used bread ties cut in half then bent in half to pin sections down with success. Hope this helps! Good luck.
Yea. I use bobby-pins. Keep top of soil moist for a few weeks until the cuttings root. New soil is a must πŸ™‚
@PlantEsteem Thanks! I love this method so much. I have never tryed it with string of pearls, but I think it could work! Good luck!πŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ
