String of Beads Care Instructions

Light:
  • As mentioned in the Care Guide, your String of Beads will do best in partial shade or indirect bright light rather than in the full direct sunlight.
  • As a houseplant, it does well in an east-facing or west-facing sunny windows.
  • If you’re growing the plant outdoors, you should bring it in before the cold months of winter.
  • Alternately, if you’re growing this amazing succulent as a groundcover, take cuttings to keep indoor plants as houseplants and return them to the outdoors when winter is over.
Watering:
  • These succulents are adapted to live in fairly arid environments and are thus able to store water in their stems and leaves for extended periods of time. Don’t assume, though, that you can just leave this beauty dry.
  • Do allow the soil to dry out between watering.
  • Do not over-water or allow the plants to sit in water.
Soil Mix:

The String of Beads likes a dry, loamy, sandy, or gravelly soil with a neutral pH level. A sharply draining succulent soil or cactus mix is a good choice.
As with any succulent or cactus, always use containers with ample drainage holes.
