String of Tears or Curio Herreanus was historically known as Senecio Herreianus. This plant is also commonly named String of Beads after its creeping stems and interesting spherical, pea-like foliage with tiny, slightly pointed tips.
String of Tears is a super laid-back plant – they like lots of sun and not much water, but don't leave them completely dry for long periods.
