Hi Jacki, I live in Australia and someone here is selling seeds for blue string of pearls. I have only heard of the green and the variegated variety, Is there a blue form?
Regards Jan.

No such thing!
by: Jacki

This is pretty much a scam, using photoshopped images of Senecio rowleyanus, which is the String of Pearls plant, tinted a completely unlikely blue color. Don't get sucked into this! You'll be disappointed when the (possible) resulting plants are the usual green.

Stick with the green or variegated form - they're beautiful.

No artificial coloured plants

Absolutely agree. Hate these artificially coloured plants. And there's beautifully Senecios that grows in the same way as this plant. The leaves are less round and more bean shaped but they go together very well
