String of Watermelons

String of Watermelons

Botanical Name
Senecio herreanus

Yvette’s Notes
A contemporary version of the string of pearls (Senecio rowleyanus) these stripey little melon shaped beads are so much fun.  The perfect way to start your collection of harder to find plants and much faster growing than other similar plants from the same family.  They are perfectly suited to someone who likes to leave their plants to do their own thing, add a touch of sun and little water and sit back and watch the succulent beads grow from the pot. 

Plant Shape
Strands of watermelon shaped succulents.

Size Now and Later
Currently filling the top of the pot. Will grow up to 60 - 90 cm.

Pot Size
14 cm round, 9 cm tall.

Light Conditions
Needs bright light and medium to high light exposure to grow successfully.

Watering Schedule
Summer watering every 3 - 4 weeks, allow the soil to dry between waterings.
Winter watering every 5 - 6 weeks, just enough to moisten the soil.

Plant Care Skills
Intermediate plant parenting skills.
Not enough light + too much water = bye bye sweet succulent.
