@SikoMa @jennilm @nyusya13 This is my first string of pearls I've had for a year now. What is working for me is only watering when I see the pearls shrunken and keep it in bright indirect light. They do get some early morning direct sunlight.
I've been trying do get mine to grow faster but it's not working! I started off with just 3 10 inch strands that somebody gave me at the end of last summer because she didn't know how to take care of them. I cut a 6 inch section off the bottom of each strand and removed the top 4 pearls from the clippings
As I read that is where the roots propagate from. I planted it correctly as far as I know at least, and in all the time that's passed they really haven't grown very much at all:-( each has a few small pearls
Next time don't cut the cuttings smaller than what you received. Also I don't think you needed to remove any pearls. Just lay the strands on soil and leave it alone. Don't water until you see roots, and then I'd just mist with a spray bottle. I think you slowed down their growth when you cut and removed the pearls.
Wow I actually got the directions right from the growers website, unbelievable! It didn't seem to make any sense to me based on what I know about cacti propagation, however I've never heard of a String of Pearls so I thought they knew more than me! thank you for your input -these have been frustrating me to a point of near Obsession LOL!
Do you ever let them hang down the side of the pot? That's what I was going for , the pictures I had seen on the website I made it look like a beaded curtain almost surrounding the planter . Really visually stunning!
