String of Teardrops Trailing Plant - Medium


The String of Teardrops or String of Beads plant (official name Senecio Herreianus and a very close relative of the string of pearls) is a flowering plant in the daisy family Asteraceae native to south west Africa. This plant was named after British botanist Gordon Douglas Rowley who specialised in Cacti and succulents. Like most succulents, it requires very little hands-on care.

In addition to its unique foliage, string of pearls can produce tiny white flowers with bright coloured stamens.

Be sure the plant (and any fallen beads) are out of reach of children and pets: This succulent can be toxic when consumed.

Plant Care Tips:

  • Watering: Like most succulents, string of pearls is drought tolerant. Make sure to plant it in a pot with a drainage hole and use potting mix suitable for cacti. Soak the soil thoroughly when watering, then make sure to let the topsoil dry out completely before watering again
  • Light: String of teardrops  does well in bright light. Consider placing it on a sunny windowsill
