How do I get my string of pearls plant to produce spherical leaves instead of long shaped ones? Am I giving it too much sun/not enough water?
Thank you!

String of Pearls with the round, bead-like leaves usually refers to Senecio rowleyanus. You have a different species or hybrid variety of Senecio with more oblong leaves. They are close relatives but not the same plant.
