It took me a minute to get a handle on String of Pearls. This delicate, precious, vining succulent is the idyllic house plant. However, she’s a finicky fecker. After a bitta trial and error (aka dead bbs 😭), I finally figured her creeping ass out.
These stringy guys tend to be pricey, albeit totally worth it with the know-how on keeping ‘em alive. Got a gripe with String of Pearls? Here’s how she’ll thrive from one little vine:
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
- String of Pearls plant (or cutting)
- Potting soil
- Morning sunlight
- Happiness in your heart

Procure yourself a precious string of pearls and make a few cuttings. Or perhaps a very good frond who loves you enough to bestow said cuttings.
Fill a planter with fresh potting soil. Press the cutting firmly into the soil to ensure the vine is making good contact. The new baby roots will grow right into it.
Water lightly once a week and permanently position your budding cutting in a window with bright, morning sunshine. This sunny, southeast-facing placement is muy importante.
Now patience, grasshoppaaah. It’ll take about three to six weeks for the roots to establish and encourage those beauteous, bubbly balls to grow.
THAT 👏🏻 IS 👏🏻 IT!!! 👏🏻
How long did it take for me to grow this mammoth String of Pearls? It took three to four cuttings—plus two supplemental cuttings somewhere in the middle of—eight months to densen up. Grow, gurl, grow. 🌿
Fun fact: wherever I’ve made a cut, the String of Pearls vine tends to grow new little bb vines. Pretty dang cute.
Are you ready to take the String of Pearls plunge?!!!
