How to grow string of pearls in a pot

  1. Choose a pot at least 150mm wide (or larger, depending on your plant size) and position in a well-lit spot in or outdoors. Ensure it’s out of direct sunlight, like sitting behind a sheer curtain. 
  2. Partially fill pot with potting mix specially formulated for succulents. Remove plant from container, gently tease the roots and cut away any circled or tangled roots and cut away any circled or tangled roots. 
  3. Position in pot and backfill with potting mix, gently firming down. Water in well.
  4. After the intial water, allow potting mix to almost completely dry out before watering again. 
  5. Feed occasionally during the growing season (usually mid spring to early autumn) with Yates Thrive All Purpose Liquid Plant Food. Apply at half strength to promote strong root development and healthy growth. 

 


Growing tips

  • Tip prune regularly to encourage an attractive multi- stemmed look. You can use these ‘cuttings’ to grow new plants!
  • Re-pot in spring once the plant becomes overcrowded.
  • It's easy to propagate new plants via stem cuttings. This can be done by laying a length of stem cuttings. This can be done by laying a length of stem on top of Yates Seed Raising Mix and watering regularly to initiate root development at nodes.
  • Due to its mildly toxic nature, position this plant away from curious children and pets.
