The string of pearls is a truly unique plant that looks exactly like it sounds: like a mass of green pearls each connected to their own string. As a part of the succulent family, these plants have an easy time growing in nearly any condition and they are made to survive and thrive with ease. From being an ideal plant for novice growers to having a lovely aesthetic, the string of pearls is one of the best indoor plants that you can choose from.
Some of the string of pearls defining characteristics are:
- Very unusual bead-like leaves
- Quick grower that will rapidly increase in size
- Easy to care for, requires minimal care and attention
- A natural survivor, has adapted to harsh environments
Let’s start with how the string of pearls looks. You’ll notice many green “strings” coming from the center of the plant that have numerous bead-like leaves growing on them. They look just like green pearls and each one has a dark green market that acts as a window to allow light to come into the light. This gives them a good amount of protection while also looking lovely.
Not only that, but the leaves are made to easily store water. This allows them to hold more than enough resources to stay alive even if the environment gets dry and water is inconsistent. This is very important in Africa, their native habitat, but it also helps them withstand the rigors of indoor growing. Their surface area also reduces their exposure to hot air and excessive sun, ensuring they stay properly cool and easily thrive in dry environments.
