Item details

5x5" cuttings Senecio radicans glauca String of Bananas

If you are ordering from an area with weather below 32 degrees, please consider purchasing a heat pack.

* You are buying live plants naturally made by Mother Earth. Please allow for variations in shape and colors and for slight imperfections.

Senecio rowleyanus, native to Namibia, Africa, has pendant stems to 3' or more with unusual round "leaves" giving the impression of a "string of pearls". The plant is a superb subject for a hanging basket, and can be in the house in a bright airy room, or outside in a protected patio. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Bright light with ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Less water during winter months. Protect from frost.


1. A cutting must be “calloused over,” meaning the cut end of the pad is dry and has sealed itself over in order to protect itself.

2. Place your dry cut end approximately 1 to 2 inches into the soil. Pack soil down firmly! Do not water for 2-3 weeks. Then water well. And allow the soil slightly dry between watering.

3. Place in a bright, warm, avoid sunny location. Plant outdoors if possible after danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed for the season. Plant may need to be protected for the first couple of years until they establish and harden off.

4. Cactus/succulent will begin to root in anywhere 2-6 weeks. When roots have established, the plant will then start to show new growth.

    Was given six clippings, but no instructions on how to get the clippings to properly root. If there were instructions I would’ve had a better survival rate.

    I received three cuttings with roots already growing on them, as well as three extra that had no roots but I propagated in a glass of water and are now growing big and strong roots! Thank you!

Succulent FAQs
What do I do when my plants arrive?

Be sure to immediately bring your package inside and completely unwrap your plants. All Shop Succulents plants are packaged with shredded paper to keep them secure, dry, and warm in transit. Often it is easiest to open the box from the bottom and carefully remove the pots. This allows you to remove the crinkle paper from the plants without disturbing the plants. Gently blow off any loose soil from the leaves. Place your plants in a location that they will be able to receive soft sun or indirect light. Only water your plants if the soil is completely dry. Refer to the Succulent Care guide above.
What if soil is displaced or my plants fall out of their pots in transit?

We take every precaution to fully protect your plants in transit. From time to time a package will endure a little more stress in transit causing some soil or plants to come loose. Succulents are incredibly resilient plants, requiring little care, and not easily damaged. Should this happen simply collect the loose soil, put it back in the pot, moisten the soil and make a depression in the soil to replant the succulent. Place the succulent in the depression just created and gently push soil back to hold the plant in place.
How do I replant my succulents?

Potting up or re-planting succulents is incredibly easy. Succulents boast many species and grow in a variety of ways. Often times the plant is easy to remove from it's original pot, where essentially the entire plant and soil base are easily removed from the cup. These are pretty self explanatory to replant. It can be mentioned here, that if the container is fairly shallow and needs less then the entire soil base, you can simply grab the soil and break off up to half of the soil base and roots without putting the plant in shock. Some species (like sedums and crassulas) have a tendancy to come apart when removing them from their pot. These species tend to grow for coverage and offer that 'spilling' or 'trailing' effect. As they may not be spilling or trailing in the 2" pot they will be once repotted and allowed a little space to grow. To manage these plants you will want to squeeze the sides of the pot to loosen the soil a bit. Put your hand over the whole top of the plant while turning the cup upside down. This will start to remove the plant from the container. Use your other hand to grab around the soil just under the plant itself. This will keep the plant and roots together for replanting. You will want to create the depression in the soil with your other hand while not taking your hand off the soil around the plant. You can then place the plant and soil in the space created and gently compress the soil around the plant to be sure it does not come apart. Finally, some succulents will have multiple plugs in each pot. These succulents often look like individual sticks. If the plant is easily removed by itself with little soil and or roots attached do not be alarmed. Many species have delicate or shallow root systems. It is ok to remove just the plant and plant it wherever you like. The plant (with proper care) will take root and continue to grow. Many succulents are grown from cuttings off of mother plants. This simply means a cutting is taken from the mother plant (given a day or two to dry) and replanted in soil. These plants start without roots but easily begin to take root and grow.

Helpful Tips:

-The chalky substance found on most succulent leaves is a protective substance that helps protect the plant from pests, disease, and sunburn. Do not intentionally rub off this film. It is best to handle the plant at it's base to avoid removing this chalky substance from it's leaves.
