Plant Description

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.

String of pearls grow their strings between other plants and rocks while in the wild. This gives them adequate protection, but it also shows how quickly these plants can grow. You can easily place these on a table, counter, mantle or hanging basket. You’ll see the strings rapidly grow, which ensures they can easily fill a whole area with beauty. Feel free to split the plant up to fill even more areas with this unusual greenery.

Despite their delicate appearance, string of pearls are hardy plants and they are easy to care for. While they can withstand some neglect here and there, it’s best to follow the instructions to ensure they grow properly. When it comes to light, string of pearls is fine with mostly indirect light and the occasional amount of direct sunlight. Just some natural light every now and then should be fine for them.

You should water this plant sparingly during the warmer seasons. Allow the soil to dry fully before watering it again. Allow the soil to dry even more during winter so that the plant can live throughout the season.

If you want a unique plant that is easy to grow, then the string of pearls might be right for you. The wonderful, bead-like leaves draw many people in because there are so few plants that look anything like this. If you want a plant that will certainly get some attention and that can add some beauty to any room, then consider getting a string of pearls.

Plant Delivery & Shipping

Bloomspace delivers to NSW, VIC, QLD, ACT, and SA. Some extra large plants and orders can only be delivered to the Sydney Metro area. All plants are carefully packed with custom packaging techniques to ensure your plant arrives in perfect condition. We have negotiated heavily discounted shipping rates with several courier services. Please select your preferred shipping company and option at the checkout page.

The majority of our orders (if ordered on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday) are received in 1-2 days for all capital cities. We do not 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.

Do the pots featured in the photographs come with the plants?

No, not all of them. The majority of our plants come in a standard grower's pot like what you would get from a nursery. Any plant that comes with a matching pot will have "with planter" in the product title and description. 

Are your plants real?

YES! We only sell real living plants.

Do you really offer a money back guarantee?

YES! We stand by our plants 100%. If there's a mistake or something doesn't quite work out with an order, we will do our best to fix it, we won't quibble, and if we can't fix it, we will return your money. If there's any thing wrong with the plant or pot upon delivery, take some pictures once you receive it, send them through to, and we'll sort it in no time!

Are your plants and pots sent at the same time?

This can vary depending on the size of the plant and pot, and where you are located. It is always safer for both of them to be sent separately, so that is our preference unless the order is close to Sydney Metro area.
