You might have already heard about String of Pearls and String of Hearts, which are some of the more popular “string” plants. Now, the very similar-looking String of Bananas does not shy away, and it puts on a show of tiny banana-shaped leaves that grow in a generous bush. This is a trailing succulent, so it will definitely mark a green spot in your house or vertical garden.
The first names that this plant achieved were Senecio radicans and Curio radicans, but the shape of its leaves gave it this more common name, string of bananas. Its origins lie in the Southern part of Africa, and, with proper care, it blooms in tiny little white or yellow flowers. The plumpy leaves store the water efficiently, so the plant is more resistant than other “string” plants, making it easy to grow and propagate.
