Water and Soil
This plant is extremely low maintenance when it comes to watering. While you do not want to let your String of Pearls to get bone dry, it does like to dry out between watering. Typically a couple of thorough waterings each month is plenty. Well-draining potting soil that is amended with a bit of perlite and peat moss is perfect for this plant.
Temperature and Humidity
This plant refers room temperatures between 65 degrees F and 85 degrees F. Don't let temperatures fall below 55 degrees F. This plant does well at standard household humidity levels but it also benefits from higher humidity.
