Round leaves on easy-to-snap stems. Related to daisies, and the white fluffy flowers will scent the room when i bloom. String of Pearls are naturally a sprawling plant that can be found growing under shrubs. When cultivating in pots they should be provided with water more-often than one would assume for succulents. Their root system is fairly shallow and can't keep up with providing water to the entire plant fast enough so frequent watering in well-draining soil is best. Avoid hot afternoon sun.
