String of Tears

Senecio herreianus

Tears of Joy

String of Tears (also called “string of beads” or “string of raindrops”) is an attractive plant with succulent leaves shaped like teardrops. Although it shares the same scientific name as String of Bananas and String of Watermelons, it is a different variety that is visually distinct. Its trailing nature makes it well-suited to hanging baskets, or for cascading over a desk or shelf. This plant is sensitive to overwatering, so the soil should be allowed to dry between waterings.
