Senecio Rowleyanus is a delicate succulent that belongs to the Asteraceae family. With its origin in South Africa, this easy-care plant grows up to 30cm to 90cm tall in height. The common name of Senecio Rowleyanus is “String of Pearls”. These beautiful plants have unique pea-shaped leaves and are dormant in the summer.
The moderately fast-growing nature of this plant makes it a great choice for a variety of landscapes.
Senecio Rowleyanus blooms in the spring. The flowers have a lovely creamy-white color.
The String of Pearls will die if they get too much water, so make sure you don't overwater them. Watering once every two weeks is recommended for these blooms.
Plant this variety in a pot with a well-drained soil mix. This plant is a perennial that is easy to grow and will survive in most indoor settings.
Pearl plants are hardy in zones 9 to 12. Since these are not frost tolerant, bring them indoors during winter if necessary.

First time buyer
I am happy with the purchase I made with the String of Pearls. The only thing was I thought it might be a little bit bigger BUT it is not terrible. All of my plants were packaged very well and arrived right on time! If I keep these alive, I haven't any a green thumb yet, I plan on purchasing more and telling my friend about this website too!
The price was good, they shipped quickly, and all the plants arrived in good health. I'm very happy with my order.
I love this plant!! It arrived in perfect condition due to the great packaging by Planet Desert. It is very healthy and I got it so fast. Definitely a winner.
