Percival, a String of Pearls, or Senecio Rowleyanus, is a succulent with you guessed it, trailing stems of pearl-like foliage. Each leaf has a semi-translucent line across its belly helping produce energy. Better still, when flowering they look like they're covered with fluffy white daisies.
Native to South Africa, if Percival is happy he can grow so long that he reaches the ground beneath him, at which point he starts spreading far and wide!
Percival, String of Pearls
Percival prefers bright indirect light, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight however would be welcomed.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
