Senecio rowleyanus - String of Pearls
The Senecio rowleyanus is a popular succulent that is also called the 'pea plant'. It owes this name, of course, to the 'peas' that grow on the stems. Another name that the succulent plant is also given is the 'string of pearls'. Perhaps a nicer name for this beautiful waterfall of pearls.
The Senecio rowleyanus likes a light spot, but preferably not in full sun.
This succulent needs very little water. Let the soil dry out thoroughly between waterings. It is best to place the plant on a saucer with water so that it can 'drink' from below, then you can hang it back in place.
The plant is not edible.
The Senecio rowleyanus is supplied in a hanging pot with a diameter of 14 cm.
The Senecio rowleyanus finds its origin in the South-West of Namibia and the North-West of South Africa.
