Why is my String of Bananas growing upwards? This is most likely an indication that your plant is not growing in sufficient light. Move your plant to stronger light. These plants grow best with at least some direct sun indoors and directly in front of a window.
In this manner, what’s wrong with my string of pearls?
Overwatering, underwatering, wrong potting mix, improper sunlight, and insects or pests all can damage your string of pearls. Therefore, providing appropriate care, as mentioned in our previous article, is essential to make your succulent thrive.
Similarly, how do you save an overwatered banana string?
Deeply water the pot and drain it well enough before placing it in a new location. Water the newly transplanted string of pearl once a week until the roots get established. Just make sure that it receives enough bright light.
How do you revive a dying string of pearls?
To revive a dying string of pearls plant, ensure that it is only watered when the soil is dry at the bottom of the pot then water with a good soak. Place in bright, indirect light and replant in succulent and cacti soil to prevent root rot.
Give the plant a good drink of water and it should perk up almost immediately and start looking better. You may need to increase watering if your String of Pearls appear shriveled. For example, If you once a month and notice the leaves start to shrivel, increase watering to once every two weeks and see what happens.
IT’S PLANTED IN A POT THAT’S TOO BIG.
A String of Pearls plant doesn’t have a big root system. Planting one in a pot that’s too big can cause the mix to stay wet which leads to root rot. The majority of the stems at the crown resting on the wet mix will cause both them and the pearls to “mush out”.
