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.
The 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.
Length - 20-30cm
Senecio Herreianus Care:
Light: Bright, indirect light. Some morning or late afternoon sun would be a bonus.
Water: Senecio is very drought tolerant, storing water in their leaves. Allow the soil to start to dry out between watering. Do not over-water or allow the plants to sit in water.
Temperature: Warm room temperatures of 21-24°C are perfect in summer. Cooler winter temperatures around 13-16°C will help to maintain good plant health and encourage blooming.
Feed: A weak solution of balanced fertiliser once a month during summer.
Care Tips: Simply trim to the desired length if they become too long or straggly.
Height and Growth Rate: Ultimate height/length 1m. Fast-growing.
Toxicity: Mildly toxic if eaten. Keep away from children and animals.
Origin: Southwest Africa.
