This lovely succulent is a fun, trailing house plant that grows long vines with succulent spheres in a luscious green hue. Happy pearls are very rounded and solid to touch. The Sting of pearls is the perfect house plant for hanging baskets or positioned to cascade over a sill or shelf. If you're lucky, the String of pearls plant will flower with a faint, white bloom that is beautifully cinnamon scented.

Please note our 'Tall Pot' variant may not be entirely compatible with round ceramic pots due to its rectangular design.

Houseplant & Indoor Plant Care

String of Pearls Care Guide

String of pearls are prone to root rot so it is best to position in a light, bright spot with plentiful airflow. A well-draining potting mix is essential - if you're fearful of overwatering this wonderful plant then a partial mix of soil and perlite will help to lighten the soil and increase drainage.

Learn More About String of Pearls

Collapsible content

What is the String of Pearls Known For?

The String Of Pearls is best known for its unique pearl-like leaves that hang from long, slender stems, giving it a striking appearance. This plant is a popular choice for hanging baskets and indoor displays due to its low-maintenance nature and unique aesthetic.

What Is the History of the String of Pearls?

The String Of Pearls plant originally gained popularity as a household ornament in the late 20th century. It belongs to the Asteraceae family and has long been admired for its unusual, bead-like foliage and trailing growth habit. Over the years, it has become a staple in modern and minimalist home décor.

Where Does the String of Pearls Originate?

String Of Pearls plants are native to the dry regions of Southwest Africa, including areas of Namibia and South Africa. These plants have adapted to their arid environments by storing water in their bead-like leaves, making them highly drought-resistant.

How Do You Care for a String of Pearls?

Caring for a String Of Pearls plant is relatively straightforward. They require well-draining soil and moderate to bright indirect light. Overwatering can be a concern, so it's best to let the soil dry out a bit between waterings. They also appreciate a mild liquid fertiliser every 4-6 weeks during the growing season.

Are String of Pearls Toxic to Pets?

It's important to note that the String Of Pearls plant is toxic if ingested, especially for pets like dogs and cats. The plant contains a toxin that can cause gastrointestinal issues such as vomiting and diarrhoea. If you have pets, it's best to keep this plant out of reach or choose a pet-friendly alternative.

    Great variety and value (especially when choosing smaller plants which you wish to grow yourself!) Wrapping/plant handling people have some magical skills as although I have been always worried about my new green purchases before they came I was relieved when opening the package to find them still bouncy and happy (and pests free!) Great option for gifts and self-spoiling! Photos attached demonstrate how little damage plants sustained in transport. Photos taken on a day of arrival!

    String of pearls

    I bought three plants as a Christmas gift, 2 of the plants were in great condition however the third was rather disappointing. It was a string of pearls plant and not in very good condition with only one dangling string which had to be snipped off as it was dead.

    I have a problem. I’ve recently become obsessed with buying house plants and my husband purchased some from here for me as a surprise. I then went on to purchase even more for myself and I now have no more room and already planning which plants to buy next! I love them and I’m very happy with what we have bought. They arrived very well packaged and I’m so pleased it’s so easy to buy plants that aren’t at my local garden centres. Next stop plantaholics anonymous haha

    The plant received was a lot less healthy looking than the website photo. Hopefully it will recover The courier, DX, notified me that it would deliver within a two hour slot and failed to do so. At the end of this period the tracking information giving the location of the courier disappeared without any explanation. The plant was delivered approx 90 minutes later and simply left on the doorstep - the courier did not knock on the door. I did not receive an apology for late delivery nor did I receive any advance notification that it would be delivered that evening. I have not received a response to the online contact form I submitted when the order did not arrive The shop app which I was advised to download to track the ordetr was useless. 2 days after delivery the app says that the order is still being shipped I will not be ordering any more plants from you

    Thought I was ordering some great deals, with decent discounts off regular prices. Plants arrived quickly, exceedingly well packaged - unfortunately, a little too tightly wrapped, as some of the foliage on plants was squashed and simply fell off when out of the packaging. Additionally, those bargains I thought I'd found turned out to be not so great - plants were all very healthy-looking, but all of them deviated greatly from the stated size ranges on the website (a tradescantia advertised as 10-20cm in size measured no more than 8cm at its single tallest point). Given how much I paid versus what I received, I think it'll probably be better to just buy from a local seller in future, as I'll at least be able to see exactly what I'm getting.
