WATER 
String of Pearls are succulents and so are very sensitive to over watering.  Allow to dry out completely before watering and if in doubt leave it a few days.  When it is time to water thoroughly soak the plant until the water runs out of the bottom of the pot, ensure all the water has drained away and then leave it to dry out again.
 

LIGHT  
String of Pearls like lots of bright indirect light and a few hours of  either morning or evening direct light.
 

FERTILISING  
Feed twice a month with standard houseplant fertiliser during the Spring and Summer months.
 

SOIL  
String of Pearls like really well draining soil, as they are susceptible to root rot. Visit our soil bar for orchid bark, pumice and perlite to add to a standard houseplant soil to achieve this.
 

TEMPERATURE  
Keep away from open winter windows and cold draughts. String of Pearls like to be warm. 
 

HUMIDITY  
As String of Pearls are succulents they do not like to be humid.  Keep out of naturally more humid rooms like bathrooms or kitchens.
 

TOXICITY 
Considered toxic to animals and humans.
