Growing Conditions

12cm hanging pot. Now known as Curio rowleyanus, this pretty trailing plant produces beautiful green spherical beads. It originates from Africa and the succulent leaves help it cope with drought as they act as a water store for the plant. Grow in well-draining soil.



Water about once a week while it is growing (spring to autumn). A sign that the plant is needing water is when the leaves are starting to shrivel but try not let them get to that stage. Water once the top of the soil has dried out.



Bright light and bright indirect light. They can cope with a little shade but favour bright indirect light.



Keep away from heaters. Average temperature but no less that 13 degrees C in the winter.
