I have always called this plant 'string of pearls' but do not know what it is.

This may not be the forum this needs to be posted in. Any guidance would be welcome. Smiling It lives in pots on a screened porch during the summer and comes indoors during the winter.

It used to be a Senecio but now apparently it's a Kleinia.

I agree! I've had it in the past, but mine always died.

It looks better in late summer after being on the porch all thru the warm days. By the time spring comes it is a little leggy from being in a northern facing room.

Sometimes it grows little pearls on the other side of the screen. Blinking I guess they start as a very tiny piece and being close to the screen..... It looks funny to have these little green pearls just stuck to the outside of the screen. Smiling
