The Variegated String of Buttons is true to its name, in that its white and green-striped leaves which grow up its stems resemble a string of (leaf-shaped) buttons.
- Their botanical name is Crassula perforata variegata, and can also be found under the common names of Stracked Crassula, Necklace Vine Plant, and Pagoda Plant.
- Variegated String of Buttons are another plant which prefers bright, indirect light over any other lighting conditions. Keeping the plant in bright indirect light will allow its variegation to come through the best. Keeping in lower light levels will cause loss of variegation, slower growth, and may make the plant become "leggy" (fewer leaves and much longer stems).
- Water lightly when the soil has dried out 2/3 the way through. Watering from the bottom-up is oftentimes recommended, to help avoid water being left on the leaves. Always allow any excess water to drain away, and avoid allowing the plant to sit in standing water as this could lead to root rot.
