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.
Prefers bright indirect light with some direct sunlight regularly.
Water sparingly and allowing the soil to dry out between watering. Reduce watering during the winter months.

Other than that, we ship to all towns and cities in the states mentioned, regardless of the population of the region. Remote country regions will cost significantly more and take longer for your plants to be delivered.
Plants in the post, will they be safe?
All plants are carefully packed with custom packaging techniques to ensure your plant arrives in perfect condition. We have conducted extensive testing on how long plants last in a box, rest assured, your plants will be fine! This applies to remote regional orders. You would be surprised how long plants last when properly packaged in a card box! For customers located in a metro area, don't be alarmed if your plants have to sit in storage over a weekend. While we try to avoid this from happening, extensive experience tells us that your plants will be fine.
How long does delivery take?
The majority of orders (if ordered on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday) are received in 1-2 days for all metro areas in capital cities. We try not to send plants on Thursday and Friday to ensure the plants aren't sitting in a box unnecessarily. Please get in touch with us if you are in Sydney and require urgent delivery later in the week, as this can be arranged upon request. Located in Sydney and require fast delivery? Please reach out to us and we can arrange a courier service for same-day delivery. Bear in mind, same-day courier services can be very expensive for large plants.
How much does delivery cost?
There is no delivery cost for orders in the Sydney and Melbourne metro areas. We have negotiated heavily discounted shipping rates with several courier services for people outside of these areas and if you would like your plant delivered earlier you can choose an express option. Please select your preferred shipping company and option at the checkout page.
I live in an apartment building/will not be home between 9-5pm/it is difficult to deliver to my place, will this be a problem?
YES! What often occurs is a back and forth tennis match between you and the courier company, with us in the middle powerless to help you get your plants. If you live in an apartment building, we strongly recommend getting your order sent to an alternative address such as your workplace or a friend's house. That way your package can be delivered without you having to be present. If it is safe for the shipping companies to leave your plants at your property, please select that option through our delivery system.
