Plant-o-Pedia: String of Bananas
String of bananas, Fish-hook senecio, Banana vine, or Necklace plant – either name you choose to use, we are B–A–N–A–N–A–S for it! It is one of our go to plants for whimsy in our homes, at Jungalow HQ and for shoots. While we won’t be nibbling on any of its little ‘bananas’, the trailing hooks are perfect for hanging planters in your sun drenched kitchen, or in a plantastic window box. If you’re feeling maximal (which is the norm for us), pair it with string of pearls for extra drama!
