String of Pearls

  • Plant: Senecio Rowleyanus
  • Location: Native to Southwest Africa
  • Water Requirement: Very sensitive to over watering but on that note just to be safe run the water through soil allowing it to fall through the holes at the bottom of the container. I would reccomend watering 1 to 2 x a week depending on how dry your soil is.
  • Sun Requirement: Bright Indirect Sunlight , Considering Indoors (Window with great Sunlight), Outdoor (Shady Area)
  • Fertilizing: 2 to 4 weeks during both Spring & Summer

Philanderon Xanadu

  • Plant: Xanadu
  • Location: Native to Brazil
  • Water Requirement: When the soil becomes dry approximately 2 inches before watering, drain excess water. For winter you want you soil to almost be bone dry so watering a lot less in the winter is a must.
  • Sun Requirements: Medium Indirect Sunlight, to much sunlight will burn leaves
  • Fertilizing: Monthly is ok during the Spring and Summer, but always make sure that the soil is wet.


  • Plant: Peace Lily
  • Location: Native to the Tropical Regions of America and Southeastern Asia
  • Water Requirement: These particular plants have a way of telling you they need water. Be on the look out for “sagging” this indicates the plant needs water.

  • Fertilizing: Any water soluble fertilizer should do the trick

Alocasia “Stingray”

  • Water Requirement: Water when dry, Dry spells require an extra inch per week to avoid this
