As it goes I always have a current favourite where plants are concerned. So right now it is ‘String of Pearls’. Do you have this amazing plant? I have not been able to get my hands on one as yet but can’t wait to own one. Also known as ‘String of Beads’ or ‘Rosary’ String of Pearls is a perennial vine of the Asteraceae family and is native to south-west Africa. It belongs to the succulent family and it requires very little hands on care.
This bead like succulent is quite a unique looking plant and will do very well in bright light. Consider putting your plant in a sunny windowsill.
This succulent loves to sprawl, make sure there is plenty of room for it to grow. Hanging baskets are a very good way to show off this lovely succulent.
Grow it in combination with other succulents and the effect is purely magic.
This particular succulent is distinct and different, but be cautious and keep it away from pets and young children as it can be toxic when consumed.
Display these beautiful succulents on your mantel. See how stunning they look.
What a creative arrangement and such a clever way to use the string of pearls.
It is an ideal plant for indoors and patios in hanging baskets and patios. It is a drought tolerant plant.
These amazing plants are both drought and heat tolerant but not very cold tolerant.
It’s mostly the foliage rather than the flowers which interests most gardeners.
I really want to own one of these, I will keep you posted about that.
I came across this brilliant article about how to care for and propagate the String Of Pearls plant. Check it out here. Do any of you own this beautiful succulent? Have you kept it indoors or outdoors. Please do share any useful tips that you might have about this beautiful succulent.
At the cost of repeating myself….:) I do love plants. Indoor plants not only add oomph and style to your space but also clean the air. Plants are big in interiors these days and are popping up everywhere, it’s one of those trends which will last. Plants complete a space, don’t they? Decorating becomes an easier job with the addition of plants. They are the trend setters. Take a look.
Do you have some space on a table top in the kitchen and an opening nearby for light? Get a collection of planters and grow some herbs. It looks stylish, you are growing the herbs you consume and you are an urban gardener. http://www.sfgirlbybay.com

Fill in empty spaces with easy to look after shade loving indoor plants like the common garden ivy or Hedera Helix.
