Description

One of the cutest plants on the market! We could stare at a full basket of Variegated String of Pearls for what feels like hours and we love to watch their delicate ‘pearls’ develop overtime. Since most specimens showcase a lot of white they’re much slower to grow than their fully green counterparts, but with the right care you’ll have those long, Instagram worthy vines in no time! Though they’re succulents, those beads need a lot of water to keep popping out so stay on top of watering, and give them lots of indirect light to maximize the green they have without burning them up.

Available in 4.5-inch hanging basket.
