There is a large amount of variety in the world of succulents. One of the most commonly known one is the "String of Pearls".
The description is conveniently right in the name! This succulent looks like a bunch of peas tied to a string. This succulent has a sister plant that is called "Variegated String of Pearls". The only difference between the two plants is that the variegated version has a pink and white tint to the pearls!
The best part about "String of Pearls" is that they are extremely easy to care for. Unlike most succulents, they can be watered quite frequently. The pearls actually get their shape from holding water inside. So, if you ever see your string of pearls shrivel up, you'll know it's time to water.
Planting "String of Pearls" is quite easy as well. They are a hardier plant, meaning they won't fall apart, and they work well with every other type of succulent. "String of Pearls" works in any type of container, as well. The most popular planter for this succulent is a hanging basket. The way that this succulent flows down is quite a sight to see!

Succulents are on the rise in today's modern world. Luckily, we are here to provide these beautiful plants!
But, first things first. In order to keep them bright and beautiful, you'll need to know some of the basics. The nice thing for you is that these plants are SUPER easy to take care of and we have mastered caring for them.
Let's start with watering. A commonly known method for watering is the ice cube method and if you use that method, make sure you keep reading! Succulents are not like normal plants, they are structured differently and require a different watering regiment. Succulents do not need to be watered frequently but DO need a sufficient amount of water, when it's time. So, make sure the soil is COMPLETELY dust dry before you water, and when you do water, soak it. We typically tell people, if the planter is small enough, fill up your sink, with cool water, and fully submerge your planter. After a few seconds of it bubbling, pull it out and let it drain through the hole of the planter at the bottom. If your planter doesn't have a hole, slowly tip the planter to the side and let the excess water drip out.
You can typically wait between 2-3 weeks before having to water your succulent.
Now, the reason these plants don't need frequent watering is because the leaves hold water, letting the plant have access to water when it needs it. So, if you see that the leaves of your succulent are starting to look dry and shriveled up, you know it needs water. But, don't worry. Succulents are pretty hardy so it should make a full recovery!
