Hanging Succulent

Hello, how are you today? Welcome to our blog About Gardening. We hope you are very well and looking forward to a new post or Gardening Tutorial.

Today we want to share with you a special post:

The Best Varieties of Hanging Succulents

Adding a plant to your collection is a great way to free up space or use those large windows that seem a bit empty, and hanging succulents are a great low-maintenance option.

These 10 attractive hanging succulent varieties have a flowing habit, which means they'll look great in hanging pots, tall shelves, or window sills.

They can also add contrast to a container garden with other succulents that they are used to growing.

String of Pearls (Senecio rowleyanus)

The pearl necklace (Senecio rowleyanus) is perhaps the most popular pendant succulent due to its impressive low appearance and ease of processing. They grow quickly in the right conditions and can reach lengths of three to four feet. Pearl necklaces are toxic to cats, dogs, and humans if ingested, so they should be kept in an elevated position out of the reach of pets.

  • Light: Bright, direct sunlight.
  • Water: Water once the ‘pearls’ have a puckered appearance.

String of Hearts (Ceropegia woodii)

Cord of Hearts (Ceropegia woodii) is another beautiful succulent with colorful, heart-shaped leaves that grow on thin stems. They are easy to propagate and can grow quickly when grown in the right conditions, with stems that reach four to five feet. Heart chain is non-toxic to cats, dogs, and humans, so it may be a better choice than bead chain if you have pets.

  • Light: Bright, indirect light.
  • Water: Water once the soil is dry.

String of Bananas (Senecio radicans)

Another succulent pendant of the Senecio genus is the banana heel (Senecio radicans). With fleshy banana-shaped leaves and long stems, this succulent is known to be easier to care for than its related pearl necklace as it grows faster and its stems are thicker and less delicate. Unfortunately, banana pearls are also toxic to cats, dogs, and humans if ingested.

  • Light: Direct sun.
  • Water: Allow the soil to dry thoroughly between waterings.

Donkey’s Tail (Sedum morganianum)

Donkey's tail (Sedum morganianum), also known as donkey's tail, is a perennial succulent plant with stems up to two feet long. It is a popular houseplant for its drought tolerance and the wrinkled appearance of its fleshy leaves. It is not toxic to pets or humans.

  • Light: Direct sun.
  • Water: Allow the soil to dry thoroughly between waterings.

String of Dolphins (Senecio peregrinus)

The dolphin string (Senecio peregrinus) gets its name from the fact that its leaves resemble a flock of jumping dolphins. Its stems are generally not as long as some of its Senecio relatives and tend to be three to eight inches at the top, but it still has a habit of popping out. Dolphin cord is considered toxic to cats, dogs, and humans if ingested.

  • Light: Direct sun to medium light.
  • Water: Allow the soil to dry thoroughly between waterings.

String of Beads (Senecio herreianus)

Often confused with the pearl necklace (Senecio rowleyanus), the pearl necklace (Senecio herreianus) is a succulent climbing plant that is distinguished by the oval shape of its fleshy leaves. Also known as a tear cord, its stems can grow three to four feet long. Like all plants in the Senecio genus, it is considered toxic to cats, dogs, and humans.

  • Light: Direct sun.
  • Water: Water once the ‘beads’ have a puckered appearance.

Rat Tail Cactus (Aporocactus flagelliformis)

The rat-tail cactus (Aporocactus flagelliformis) is an attractive variety of cacti characterized by long stems that can reach more than a meter in length.

Compared to most varieties of cacti, this species grows rapidly and its stems can grow up to a foot per year. Keep the rattail cactus in a safe place out of reach, as its pointy flesh can easily harm curious animals or children.

  • Light: Direct light.
  • Water: Keep the soil moist during the growing season.

String of Nickels (Dischidia nummularia)

Chain nickel (Dischidia nummularia) is a tropical succulent grown for its attractive coin-shaped foliage, ranging in color from pale green to beautiful silver-green.

Unlike other very shiny succulents, nickel wire can still do well in low light and grows well indoors, just like houseplants.

The vines in a row of coins can grow up to three to four feet long. Note that this species is slightly poisonous when ingested.

  • Light: Bright indirect light to medium filtered light.
  • Water: Keep the soil evenly moist but avoid waterlogging.

Fishbone Cactus (Disocactus anguliger)

Another hanging succulent that is revered for its unique appearance is the herringbone cactus (Disocactus anguliger), also known as the zigzag cactus.

This species has a habit of growing upright as a young plant and as it matures the leaves begin to drop and develop a final habit.

As a result, these succulents look great in ordinary hanging baskets and vases. Herringbone cacti are not toxic to cats, dogs, and humans.

  • Light: Bright, indirect light.
  • Water: Water once the soil is dry.

String of Rubies (Othonna capensis)

Ruby Thread (Othonna capensis) is a fast-growing succulent characterized by a crimson red stem and thin, bean-shaped leaves that turn bright red when exposed to direct sunlight.

The stems of a non-toxic ruby bead can reach a foot in length and spread easily.

  • Light: Medium-light to direct sun.
  • Water: Allow the soil to dry thoroughly between waterings.
