After I propagate String of Pearls, I give them about 3-5 weeks to let the roots grow and develop. If you take the cutting out and they haven’t rooted, no worries.
Keeping this in consideration, how do you accelerate growth of string of pearls?
Similarly, are string of pearls slow growing?
The string of pearls grows slowly during the winter season
They like to rest during this period. You don’t need to worry if you don’t see growth in your string of pearls during the winter season.
Should you mist string of pearls?
The string of pearls doesn’t like to be misted as they are succulents that originate from dry and warm climates. Misting your string of pearls can lead to severe problems like fungal infection and pest infestation. While propagating them, you can mist it lightly until it develops the root system.
Top or Bottom watering? Some folks have better success bottom watering, but if your pot doesn’t have that option, top watering is not a problem as long as the air circulation is good at the soil surface.
Overdoing the fertilizer can lead to root damage which makes the plant weak. You may inspect these signs if your String of Pearls has been over-fertilized: stunted growth, discoloration, brown foliage and burnt roots. To avoid overfeeding, only fertilize your plant once or twice a year.
