The most common reason for a String of Pearls plant to run into problems is root rot, caused by overwatering.
So make sure your pearls are in a fast draining succulent potting mix. You can take it a step further, by adding some pumice or perlite to the soil.
The Sting of Pearls plant likes a lot of light. It can handle a spot on a sunny window sill. Direct light is ok, but preferably not all day.
If you can, give your plant a few hours of direct morning sun, followed by bright, indirect light for the rest of the day.
When to water your String of Pearls plant.
Look at your pearls. When they start to shrivel, and the soil feels dry, it is time to water.
How to water the String of Pearls depends on the season you’re in.
During summer the pearls are in their growing mode, water when you notice the soil starts to dry out.
In winter the plant is resting. So it needs less water. Water sparingly just enough to moisten the soil. Wait until the soil is nearly dry throughout before you water again.
