Strings of …
String Succulents that Hang are becoming popular. What exactly are these beauties? These trendy plants belong to a genus of plants called senecio, which encapsulates more than 1,000 different varieties. These typically grow downward on a long, thin vine called a “string.” “The ‘leaves’ resemble shapes of pearls, bananas, hearts, oval beads, and nickels, to name a few. They make excellent hanging plants to be displayed in hanging baskets, but are very attractive when allowed to ‘spill’ down shelves and window ledges. Check out below the ones that we are growing:
- Strings of Pearls
- Strings of Bananas
- Strings of Dolphins
- Strings of Pickles
- Strings of Fishhooks
- Strings of Arrows
- Strings of Turtles
