The 'String of Tears' is a succulent with long stems that can reach more than a meter. In its natural habitat, it is a creeping plant. As a houseplant, it is appreciated in a hanging pot with its stems hanging gracefully. The drooping rods adorned with small green oval balls that shine in front of the windows! This plant needs plenty of light to maintain its good health. In spring, small white flowers appear leaving a sweet smell of cinnamon. During the winter, from December to the end of February, it likes to rest by reducing its light, the ambient temperature and the frequency of watering. This moment of rest favors its flowering.
