Small pearls

Asked January 12, 2020, 10:33 PM EST

Hi...I have had my string of pearls for about 8 months. The new growth on the plant has produced Ed really small beads unlike the older parts of the plant. As the strings have lengthened the pearls have not increased in size. What would be causing this? The strands also feel a little tacky I look forward to your advice Kind regards Colleen

Hello,

Ideally, I would need more information on how you’re caring for the plant, such as light, fertilizer, growing medium, type of container, indoors/ outdoors, etc. Here’s an article that discusses the String-of-Pearls. If the article does not answer your question, please write back with pictures and more details.
