How to Care for String of Buttons Plants
Be sure to read our planting instructions to ensure a healthy and happy plant for years to come!
How much sun do String of Buttons Succulents Need?
String of Buttons is a sun-loving plant. If planting outdoors (zone 9 or warmer), ensure it will receive a minimum of 4 hours of sunlight a day. When indoors, bright indirect light is best, and it will tolerate filtered light. It will probably not thrive in low light corners, so window sills that do not get too much direct sunlight are better.
What kind of soil is best for Stacking Crassula?
String of Buttons Plants need very well draining soil, they are used to more arid climates. They are sometimes used in landscaping designs that require very little water, perfect for water conservation efforts. We recommend a good cactus potting mix, or amending potting soil with lots of coarse sand and similar materials that will allow extra drainage. These kinds of plants do well in terra cotta pots, since those pots offer more aeration and retain less moisture than glazed pots.
How do I propagate String of Buttons Plants?
String of Buttons Plants may be propagated via cuttings. Choose a stack that has at least 3 to 4 inches available with lots of leaves, and remove that much of the stem. Let the stem dry for a few days, then simply replant in cactus soil or potting soil amended to be very very well draining. Place your newly planted cutting in a very sunny location. It may take a few months for the cuttings to develop a root system - make sure they have just enough water, not too much. Cuttings from the tops of taller stems are less woody and work better.
How often should I water my String of Buttons Plant Plant?
String of Buttons plants are used to arid climates, so they will be just fine if they go a little longer between waterings. Water well, then leave the plants alone until the soil has dried out completely before watering again. The rate at which the soil dries has a lot to do with the season and how dry or humid your home is - you may need to water ad frequently as every 10 days or as infrequently as once a month.
