Light: Provide your String of Bananas plant with bright, indirect sunlight. It thrives in moderate, indirect light. Ensure it receives ample natural light, but shield it from intense, direct sunlight, which can cause leaf scorch.
Temperature: Maintain a warm indoor environment with temperatures between 70-80°F (21-27°C). Protect the plant from cold drafts and temperature fluctuations.
Watering: Allow the soil to dry out partially between waterings. Water sparingly, but thoroughly, and avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot. During the growing season (spring and summer), water more frequently, and reduce watering in the dormant season (fall and winter).
Soil: Use well-draining cactus or succulent potting mix to ensure proper drainage and prevent waterlogged soil. A mix of potting soil, perlite, and sand is suitable.
Pot: Ensure the pot has drainage holes to prevent water accumulation at the root level. String of Bananas prefers slightly crowded conditions and does not require frequent repotting.
Fertilization: Feed your plant lightly with a balanced, water-soluble succulent fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid over-fertilizing, as this can harm the plant.
Pests: This succulent is generally pest-resistant, but occasional mealybugs or aphids may appear. Inspect your plant regularly and treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
