String of Bananas
These trailing succulents require bright, direct light when grown indoors. Choose a location that receives at least six hours of sunlight throughout the day. String of bananas do well under grow lights as well if needed.
If this plant is not receiving enough light, it will become leggy and the banana-shaped leaves will become significantly more spaced out along the stem - a look that is often considered less visually appealing.
This hardy succulent is considered to be drought-tolerant with low water needs. There is no universal schedule for how often a string of bananas will need to be watered as this can depend on a variety of factors, but, as a general rule, the soil should be allowed to dry out completely between waterings.
It is better to under-water a string of bananas than to overwater as they are highly susceptible to root rot. Keeping the succulent planted in well-draining soil and ensuring that the pot has adequate drainage will also help to prevent root rot.
