: Overwatering is the chief cause of disease or death of any plant. As a succulent String of Beads are drought tolerant, but they could do with little sprinkles of water a few times a month. The right kind of potting mixture will ensure that your plant will not have to endure standing water at any point. Watering
: Feeding your String of Beads a few times a year is a good way to get them to thrive. So give them some organic liquid fertiliser once or twice a year. Dilute it in water as described on the pack and add little to each pot as part of your watering routine. If you are using a chemical fertiliser do ensure that you keep it away from the plant and its base. Fertilising
