Yuppie ...u can plant it easily from stem cuttngs as it grows similar to grases ...and due to horizontal growth spread all the way in pot..also u can plant many colors that looks even more fascinating ....it blooms well in early summer till november or decmbr strt if m nt wrong in memory ...i have many pinks... :idea:

Try senecio rowleyanus or commonly called 'string of pearls' or senecio radicans common name 'string of bananas plant', they can tolerate both, full shade and full sun.

String of pearls are a sort of succulent but they are actually from the 'Aster' family, so like all succulents the drainage in the pots needs to be good if not the plant will rot, i will post the pics of my plant soon it is on flower these days. mix 2 parts coarse sand and 1 part fully rotted manure with the soil that you are using to improve drainage.
