String Of Pearls Indoor Plants
A plant with a distinctive and unusual appearance, string of pearls, also known as string of beads, is bound to be a conversation piece. Indoor plants with small, bright green, bead-like leaves that appear on long, slender stems, string of pearls are usually planted in hanging baskets where it had space to cascade freely. The string of pearls indoor plants grows well in bright light, including sunlight. You should provide this string of beads houseplant with average indoor temperatures (around 72 F./22 C.) throughout its active growth. During its dormancy, however, you’ll need to provide cooler conditions, generally somewhere between 50 to 55 F. (10-13 C.). Give these indoor plants well-draining sandy soils, preferably the type most suitable for growing cacti and succulent plants. Pot your plant in a hanging basket so its trailing foliage can hang down.
As with most succulent plants, the string of beads indoor plants requires little care. This succulent plant is drought tolerant, surviving long periods without water. In fact, the plant’s water-storing abilities allow it to be watered thoroughly one week and then pretty much forgotten the next week or two. Watering too often can increase the chances of root rot. So be sure to let the soil dry out at least half an inch or so between watering. In winter, cut back watering to about once monthly. Occasionally, you may find that pruning becomes necessary as part of your string of pearls care in order to maintain its size or appearance. This is simple to do.
