About Senecio Rowleyanus

Senecio Rowleyanus, also known as string of pearls/ String of beads, is a popular trailing succulent for its pendant stems, with pearl-like leaves. A fast grower which is easy to propagate from stems cuttings. Small white blooms in cooler months of the year.

How to care for Senecio Rowleyanus

Sun/Location: Like other soft succulents, String of pearls requires indirect bright sunlight to thrive. It can be placed outdoors in spring and fall to get full sunlight. Shade is required in summer to avoid sunburn. In winter, protection from frost is needed. The unique bead-like foliage makes String of Pearls an excellent choice as a trailing houseplant by a south-facing window.

Soil/Pot: Senecio succulents prefer the loose and well-drained cactus soil mix, adding additions such as perlite, grit, and sand that can improve drainage and help the root breathe well. The planter pot with a drainage hole is necessary. Click here to learn how to make your succulent soil.

Watering: String of Pearls is very sensitive to overwatering. Besides using a well-drainage soil mix and container with drainage holes, the best way of watering is the 'soak-and-dry method. Water deeply enough for water to run out of the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to fully dry before watering again.

It is important to us that you are able to Keep going and Keep growing without any stress about the quality of the product or packaging.

Shipping Speed

In general, it takes 3 to 10 days for plants to arrive after you place your order. All orders will be shipped out 48 hours after you place them. We ship the orders on work days(from Monday to Saturday) and all year round. In normal conditions, it will take 3-10 days for you to receive the package. Estimated shipping times are offered as needed.

EXTREME WEATHER NOTICE: The Next Gardener reserves the right to hold shipments during storms or periods of extreme heat or cold. This is to ensure your plant does not suffer while it is in transit.

Winter shipping

We insist on shipping succulents to our customers all year round. However due to the extreme winter weather, although we pack succulents with as much protective material as possible, plants are still at increased risk of frost on their way to colder areas. We highly recommend adding one 72-hour heat pack to your order or you can request a hold on the package until it warms up.

Please note that The Next Gardener is not responsible for packages that suffer cold damage without a heat pack. We cannot control the weather. Order at your own risk.

Hawaii, Alaska, and Other US Territories

Fortunately, shipping is available to Alaska, Guam, and other U.S. Territories. However, due to numerous factors beyond our control, including customs checks and shipping delays, free shipping to Hawaii and Puerto Rico is not an option. And we can not provide the 14-day quality guarantee for orders going to Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The buyer will assume all risk of damage when a delivery is delayed. We appreciate your understanding.

Sorry. No International Shipping for now!!!

Intriguing little specimen

I was always under the impression that String of Pearls was a slow growing plant. I'm pleased to say that my plant is growing like wildfire! I enjoy the unique appearance and recommend The Next Gardener for quality nursery stock and fast, secure shipping.
