Senecio Peregrinus (String of Bananas)
String of Bananas Plant Care Although outdoor string of pearls plants need partial shade, indoor plants benefit from bright sunlight. However, avoid intense afternoon sunlight during the summer months. String of pearls is drought tolerant. Water when the soil feels dry to the touch, but don’t allow it to remain bone dry. String of pearls generally requires no fertilizer. If growth appears poor, however, provide a dilute solution of a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer. Never feed the plant during the winter months. String of bananas enters a period of dormancy during the winter. Water less frequently during this time, providing just enough moisture to keep the plant from becoming bone dry.
