A low-growing, creeping dwarf succulent originating in southwest Africa, Chain of ?Watermelons, or Chain of Footballs is a quirky plant with strange, trailing stems of oval, bead-like leaves, the shape of beads or grapes. In various parts of the world, it is also called Sring of Beads or String of Watermelon. When in bloom, the flowers appear on tall, slender stems as tiny fuzzy white daisies.

This plant needs sun or bright light to thrive indoors. But unlike other succulents, Senecio plants do like water on a fairly frequent basis. And give them some room to trail—they look particularly attractive grown in a beautiful hanging basket or cascading from shelves.
