Chains and Strings are great trailing plants most of which belong to the succulent family. The chains include Chains of Hearts or the variegated Chain of Hearts. Strings include String of Pearls, variegated String of Pearls, String of Melons, String of Dolphins, String of Turtles, String of Hooks or String of Needles


Whether it is a Chain or a String, all of them require bright indirect light but can tolerate some direct morning sun.


Many have tried and sometimes failed to get the watering right with Chains and Strings.

The trick is to let them dry out completely before watering thoroughly until the water runs out the bottom of the pot.


The soil should be loose and not densely packed to allow for free water drainage and oxygen supply to the roots. We recommend a cacti and succulent mix for your chains and strings.


Chains and Strings thrive best in room temperatures of between 20°C - 28°C.

During the colder months of the year, they can withstand temperatures down to 10°C. We do not recommend exposing them to those temperatures of an extended period of time.

In winter keep them away from log burners or away from the path of the airflow from your heat pump.


Any average household humidity level is fine for Chains and Strings and no additional humidity is required.

Along with the rest of your houseplants, your Chains and Strings should be regularly fed with a well-balanced fertiliser.

During spring and summer this should be on a fortnightly basis while in winter when the plants are going into dormancy or are dormant once a month at half strength.


Chains and Strings are easy to propagate either in water or directly into soil.

You can take a cutting of a part of a vine from any of these plants and place the part of the cutting where the cut was made into water or directly into soil. Sometimes a leaf or two have to be removed to allow for enough length of the vine to securely sit in water or to be planted deep enough into soil.

We are recommend to also pin some if not each node (where the leaf meets the vine) of the remainder of the cutting to the surface of the soil which will encourage root growth and branching from those nodes.
