LIGHT- This plant thrives on a combination of direct & indirect sunlight. They're happiest in direct morning sun (east window) or indirect in that harsh & hot afternoon sun.

WATER - String of pearl is very sensitive to over watering so less is more when I comes to watering! Every 2-3 weeks or when the top two 2 inches of soil is dry. If you notice the 'pearls' looking shriveled or wrinkly that's a good sign it's time to water.

PRUNING - Pruning can help promote a fuller plant. Simply trim off any dead stems or peals or any stems that hav

e lost all their pearls. To propagate you can just cut a stem off your plant, remove the 'pearls' on the bottom inch & then place them into water or directly into soil. They should root within a few weeks.
