Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust. First time watering my new variegated string of pearls I killed it. Watered from the bottom, has good draining soil, the pot has a drainage hole. It happened to my burro tail but I think I was able to catch it in time. My thoughts are poor air circulation. And I am thinking I need a moisturize meter to help identify when to water. Anyone else doing everything they think is correct but still having casualties?
6ft to light, indirect
2” pot with drainage

βœ‹ I cannot keep these things alive in pots. I water most of my SOP in pots from the bottom. I've put in a humidifier. I give them the brightest of light and in the winter, they get grow lights. They hate me. I have an embarrassing few pearls hanging on in my pots, but that's it. HOWEVER I have a few strands that I practically ignore in a prop box and they are doing so well! They are growing in sphagnum moss so I can't untangle the roots. The problem is, I can't see them and enjoy them- but they are doing really well where I can't even get to them easily. It's a struggle. I'm going to play to my strengths and enjoy the rest of my plants. There's a REALLY NICE SOP at an urban nursery by my place... it's totally plastic and looks super-real. That's now on my wishlist.
