Variegated String of Pearls is a well loved wishlist item for all plant collectors. It's known for its pearl like leaves that are swirled in cream, green, and sometimes even pink and purple colors with the right combination of sun stress and water. The thin, string-like stems trail elegantly and can cascade several feet.

It's a perfect gift for yourself, your family, and all your loved ones with its fascinating look and elegant features. It is more vibrant and striking than actual pearls!

The plant is beautiful in a hanging basket, and can be grown inside the house in a bright airy room, or outside in a protected patio. The plant will purify the air, cleaning up the atmosphere around wherever it is situated. You will need to provide protection from frost.

Variegated String of Pearls is slower growing in comparison to its non-variegated counterpart, due to lacking some of the chlorophyll that completely green leaves possess.

Botanical name: Senecio rowleyanus Variegata or Curio rowleyanus Variegata

Care Tips

Light: Indirect light, shade, or early morning sun. They are more sensitive to direct sunlight as the variegated parts lack the chlorophyll to process it. Direct sunlight would cause sunburn easily.

Water: Only when potting mix is dry to touch. Needs regular infrequent watering in summer and much less in winter

Soil: Well draining succulents potting mix

Temperature: The optimal temperature range is from 65F to 90F during the day. At night keep the temperature above 40F

Planting: String of Pearls does best in places where its strings are able to hang or form ground cover. Baskets are perfect for letting the impressive strings grow and trail. Garden walls and rockeries also allow this plant to spread and thrive.

Fertilizer: Use a general fertilizer twice a year to enhance new growth and the plant’s overall health. Over fertilizing causes malformed growth.

Blooming: The flowers are dainty and white, and form tightly compacted puffballs. Each bloom has a halo of deep red to golden yellow filaments.

Dormancy: Variegated String of Pearls don’t go into full dormancy, but growth slows during winter months.

Propagation: String of Pearls propagates via clippings. Allow the cut end to callous over and insert into dirt during warm months. Roots sprout from the leaf nodes.


Shipping & Handling

    • Variegated String of¬†Pearls¬†are shipped with the pot and soil
    • You will receive a very similar plant to the one shown in the photos; shape and color may vary
    • Ship within USA &¬†its outlying territories only
    • Please visit¬†Order Processing & Shipping¬†info page for additional details


    Care Instructions

    Please visit our Succulent Care info page for more details.

    To ensure the health of succulents, it is important to plant them in porous, well-draining soil. Succulents require little watering, but don't like to sit in wet soil. To create an adequate cactus mix, simply add pumice, perlite, or grit to cactus soil to provide the proper drainage.

    Make sure to leave drought periods between waterings to prevent the plant from water-logging.


    Weather Conditions

    • When ordering, be mindful that living succulents can freeze. If you live in an area that is below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, please consider purchasing plant until the weather is more suitable.
    • Shipping Warmer:¬†72+ Hours Heat Packs¬†available for $3 each

      Packaging & Handling

      Vast majority of our plants shown in 4" pot and above are shipped bare roots.

      Most plants shown in 2" pots are shipped in their original plastic pots with soil because they are small and are less subject to damaging during transit.

      When a shipping box contains multiple plants, we carefully wrap each individual plant in tissue paper, then fill the remaining space in the box with eco-friendly newspaper and magazine paper to ensure the plants don't move around during shipping, and hence minimize shipping shock.

      Shipping with Pots

      The plants listed below are shipped with the pot and soil to ensure that they can stay healthy through transit:

      • Most plants shown in 2" pot (exclusion applies, some 2" plants are shipped bare root to¬†provide¬†better protection)
      • String of Pearls in 2" and 4" pot
      • Variegated String of Pearls
      • String of Hearts
      • Variegated String of Hearts

      Shipping Bare Roots

      Shipping bare roots and soft paper wrapping provide the following benefits:

      • Prevent broken parts, fracture, scuffing, and fallen nodes/leaves
      • Minimize¬†residual moisture¬†within¬†the package
      • Prevent soil getting into the leaves and causing a big mess
      • Reduce shipping weight and the cost that our customers pay

      Shipping Practices

      In order for our plants to arrive at your front door in great condition, we have established the following shipping practices to ensure a safe arrival: 

      • The succulents are removed from their nursery pots, stripped of their soil, and set aside to dry if necessary.
      • Each succulent is then wrapped in tissue paper to protect them during transit. The tissue paper serves two purposes; a) to protect the plants from one another and b) to wick away any residual moisture from the root system.
      • The wrapped plants are then packed into a cardboard shipping box. The voids within the box are filled with eco-friendly newspaper and magazine paper, in order to prevent movement of the plants within the box, and hence minimize shipping shock.

      While this process requires a significant time investment, we feel it's the best way to demonstrate our commitment to delivering high-quality plants in great condition.

      We handpick the succulents and only ship out the most beautiful and healthy specimens. If you have any concern about the health and shape of your plants, please contact us immediately. We are always here to answer your questions.

      Shipping Rates

      We offer discounted shipping rates with United States Postal Service. Our shipping rates are calculated based on the total weight of purchased items.

      If your order is over 1 lb, USPS Priority Mail will be selected and the shipping rates will be charged at the next full pound rounded up, per USPS standards.

      For example, if the current items in your cart weigh 1.2 lbs, you could add more plants to your cart up to a total weight of 2 lbs without incurring extra shipping cost.

      Here are some weight range for different sizes of plants. The actual weight for each item might vary:

      2" Plants - 0.2 - 0.3 lbs each

      4" Plants - 0.3 - 0.4 lbs each

      6" Plants - 0.4 - 0.7 lbs each

      8" Plants - 0.7 - 0.9 lbs each

      Order Processing

      Plant orders are shipped within 1-3 business days from the date of purchase. We thank you for your patience as we are always working as hard as possible to pack and ship your orders.

      The reason why order processing could take up to 3 business days is because when plants are removed from the soil in preparation for packaging and shipping, we need to wait for the plants and roots to dry out. This can ensure that they can stay healthy over the course of transit.

      Occasionally, additional processing time may be required for restocking inventory between our nursery and store.

      Additional processing time may be required during Sale or Promotional periods due to above average order volume.

      If you need your order urgently, please contact us via chat or support@succulentsdepot.com to inquire about estimated handling time before you make your purchase.  

      Combined Shipping

      If you place multiple orders within a short time frame, we may combine your orders and ship all your items in one package. A refund is not automatically given because each order requires time and labor to process, and in many occasions, combined shipping cost is only marginally lower because of the increase in shipping weight or possible Priority Mail shipping upgrade.

      Shipping Methods and Transit Time

      We ship our plants Monday through Friday, all twelve months of the year.

      All of our orders are shipped via USPS First Class Mail or USPS Priority Mail, both of which take 1-3 business days to arrive. Please note that these shipping times are simply estimates and may take longer than anticipated. Succulents Depot has no control over what happens to packages after they are in the possession of the USPS. If your order takes longer than the expected due to a USPS mishap, don't panic; succulents are very hardy and can handle shipping durations of a week to 10 days quite easily.

      Receiving and Opening Your Package

      While meticulously packaged, the plants might still be unhappy with being in a dark box for a long time. Therefore, some may look slightly dull and wilted. Therefore, right after you receive the package, open it immediately.

      Carefully and gently remove the packing materials. Don't put the plants in sunlight immediately. These are greenhouse grown succulents, so they need to get acclimated to sunlight gradually. Keep them in shade or indirect sunlight, and slowly introduce them to direct sunlight.

      Give the plants a few days to recover, then repot if necessary and start watering. If you receive the plants bare root, immediately pot them in succulent and cactus soil mix, then follow the same instructions above. The plants should perk up after getting a good soak from watering.

      Visit our Succulent Care page for additional info and tips.

      Shipping in Summer

      It is the responsibility of customers residing in areas subject to extreme heat waves to plan the shipments until the weather is safe for shipping. Please leave a note in your order or contact us to postpone or reschedule your shipments. Extremely high temperature can cause the plants to rot and die. Make sure to retrieve the packages as soon as they are delivered. Don't let the packages sit under direct sunlight for more than an hour.

      Shipping in Winter

      It is the responsibility of customers residing in areas subject to freezing weather to purchase a Heat Pack.

      Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival.  Fragile plants such as bear paw, baby toe, etc. may break or lose a few of their leaves during transport.

      If you receive your package and are not satisfied, or if your plants are severely damaged, please message us immediately. We'll try our best to accommodate you.

      • Potting soil on leaves (easily washed off with first watering)
      • A couple of broken, missing, or wilted leaves, as long as 75% or more healthy leaves remain intact
      • Minor color / shape differences from photograph in product listings (many succulents change color / shape continuously)

      • Any issues with the plants after 7 days of delivery

      Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year. Sedums such as Cherry Tart and Lime Zinger are dormant in the winter, i.e. they wilt, start dropping leaves, and look dead. It's simply a survival mechanism that help succulents stay alive over the cold winter and gear up for warmer days ahead.
