String of tears
What makes it special in. the String of tears
The String of Tears (Senecio herrerianus or Curio herrerianus) is an interesting succulent plant native to Namibia in South Africa. This member of the Asteraceae family is a tender perennial succulent desired for its creeping stems and attractive, teardrop-shaped foliage.
Curio citriformis prefers dry, loamy, sandy or gravelly soil with a neutral pH level. A fast-draining succulent soil or cactus mix is a good choice. As with any succulent or cactus, always use a container with adequate drainage holes.
String of tears plants prefer moist soil but can tolerate dryer conditions. It is best to mist the leaves frequently, mainly when they are located in areas where there is less moisture in the air.
String of Teardrops does best in partial shade or indirect bright light rather than full direct sunlight. As a houseplant, it does well in an east- or west-facing sunny window.
Fertilize these succulents once a year during the summer. Use a weak solution of a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.
Using sterilized scissors or pruners, cut away any dead stems and beads as well as stems that have lost a lot of leaves.NOTE:
