#StringOfPearls
1ft to light, direct
4” pot with drainage
Last watered 1 week ago
They do good in a southeast facing window
Yeah it really needs it! This plant grows fast and it loves the sun, a good windowsill or a hanging basket in nice weather will do it good :) also important to bottom water it as you want to keep the top soil dry or else the pearls could rot.
@SBeezy ohhhh yeah I know all about the rotting, believe me πŸ˜‚ this ain’t my first string of pearls. The last one…ugh….
@KinderPlants recently I talked with @TheOddAsity who told me to lay a quarter inch or so layer of perlite at the bottom and then stick a boba straw all the way down to the perlite so you can water directly through the straw to the bottom. I have yet to go get boba since then but once I do I’ll definitely be trying it out!
