String of Pearls plants are my Eleanor to Nicholas Cage's 1967 Shelby GT500. These little plants are whimsical, unique, and require just a little TLC to thrive.

Actually, a LOT of TLC.

Try as I might, they have yet to survive my greenish thumb. First, they supposedly prefer bright, indirect light, so find them a cozy spot near a window. Be cautious with watering—these little guys prefer to stay slightly dry, so allow the soil to dry out between waterings. As for fertilizing, a diluted succulent fertilizer once a month during the growing season will keep them happy. I think.

Lastly, trim any leggy strands to maintain a compact, cascading appearance, or use those little strands to try and propagate with. With these simple tips, your string of pearls will flourish with grace. Hopefully. If you have any tips and tricks for these succulents, please let me know. I'll be waiting.
