Curio rowleyanus
String of pearls
String of pearls is a succulent vine that looks like its common name, with small bubbles or pearls growing along its length. The string of pearls blooms with white flowers that have brightly colored stamens and a fragrance similar to cinnamon. With its cascading tendrils, the string of pearls makes a wonderful display in a hanging basket.
Curio ficoides
Blue chalkstick
Blue chalkstick is a succulent plant with tiny, thick, green leaves that resemble pencils. The plant is notable for being virtually indestructible and can tolerate neglect and harsh environmental conditions. Its unique appearance makes it a popular choice for modern and minimalist interior design.
Curio repens
Blue Chalksticks
Blue Chalksticks has long, slender, pale-blue leaves that are shaped like classroom chalk or a crescent. The plant is very easy to care for and can be planted in open fields to grow well without much maintenance. It tends to grow excessively during rainy seasons. For cutting propagation, cut off the elongated stems; they will easily survive replanting.
Curio talinoides
Narrow-Leaf Chalk Sticks
The Latin name, Curio talinoides, is named for its remarkable similarity to the Talinum genus of flameflowers. However, narrow-Leaf Chalk Sticks is a succulent native to South Africa whose foliage is highly toxic to people and animals.
Curio herreanus
String of pearls
String of pearls is an extremely popular succulent, distinguished by its creeping stems and interesting spherical, egg-shaped leaves with pointed tips. Very similar to the famous Curio herreanus, it makes a wonderful choice for hanging baskets. Its Latin name is in honor of the late Adolf Gottlieb Julius, a horticulturist and explorer of the 20th century.
Curio radicans
String of bananas
String of bananas (Curio radicans) is a succulent species that is often planted as a houseplant. As one might guess from its appearance, it is not a type of banana, but simply named "string of bananas" because of the succulent leaves' shapes. This species is easy to grow, and it is often seen in pots, hanging baskets, or succulent gardens. It produces cinnamon-scented flowers which have a tendency to attract insects.
Curio articulatus
Candle plant
A rare sight, thecandle plant (Curio articulatus) sports distinctive leaves that are green on top but purplish on their undersides. Surprisingly, this plant bursts into life in the winter months and may be leafless and dormant in summer, during which time it is recognizable by its distinctive sausage-shaped stems. Its discoid flowers may be yellow, white, or pink.
