There is a small tip on at the distal point of each leaf and a thin band of dark green tissue.The trumpet shaped flower forms clusters (about 1⁄2 inch diameter) of small white flowers with colorful stamens. The flower will last about a month and is said to smell like cinnamon and other spices.
String of Pearls are very easy to care for and they are perfect indoor plants during fall and winter seasons. They only need to be watered once every week or two when soil is completely dried. They grow well under grow light or fluorescent light.
