String of Bananas is a beautiful hanging houseplant that will never let beginners and experts alike down. Native to South Africa, Senecio radicans or generally known as “String of Bananas” is a type of succulent that displays trailing glossy, banana-shaped foliage and tiny lavender, yellow, or white blooms. Although relatively close to the String of Pearls succulent, this type is said to be more fast-growing and easier to care for as it’s drought-tolerant and low maintenance. They grow splendidly on hanging baskets, containers, trellis, and moss poles.
