Curio radicans

String of Bananas

$45.00 USD

String of bananas, or Curio radicans (aka Senecio radicans), is a trailing succulent native to South Africa. It’s often also called banana vine and grows smaller but similar shaped leaves to the string of fishhooks.

The plant grows from weak surface roots, producing trailing stems up to three feet long on the ground which can root where they touch soil to form dense mats. It often grows under bushes or between rocks which provide some protection from intense sunlight.

Available in 6" hanging basket, tendrils are approximately 3-4' long

Caring for your Curio radicans


Water Regularly

NOT Pet Safe



String of Bananas thrive in direct sunlight and or hanging next to a window. Ensuring the top of the soil sees sunlight promotes thick growth, and full strings of pearls.  Prune often to create a fuller looking plant.

This plant is also identified as Senecio radicans but was reclassified into the Curio family.

  • Full sun to bright indirect light
