String of Beads (Senecio Herreianus) Hanging Basket 150mm.
Senecio herreianus is a unique, quirky succulent with intriguing, trailing stems of oval, bead-like leaves, each with a vertical, semi-translucent line running to its tip which assists photosynthesis. Flowers appear on tall, slender stems as small, white fuzzy daisies.
String of Beads plants need room to trail. Perfect for hanging baskets or cascading from shelves. A close relative of Senecio rowleyanus - String of Pearls.
Light: Senecio herreianus prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid exposing your plant to harsh midday sunlight, though some morning or late afternoon sun would be a bonus.
Watering: Senecio are very drought tolerant, storing water in their leaves. Allow the soil to start to dry out between watering. Do not overwater or allow the plants to sit in water.
Please note: String of Beads vines are coiled in the packaging by the growers to protect them in transit. On opening, we recommend gently unfurling the coils and teasing apart the vines around the pot. If you rush this stage, you risk losing some of the beads. Let the coils hang for several days before continuing to gently separate the vines (patience is a virtue). Some foliage loss is unavoidable, however they are fast growing plants and will regenerate quickly.
