String-of-pearls leaves are spherical and have clear translucent longitudinal lines on the leaf surface. When the plant is particularly well-hydrated, the longitudinal lines look almost transparent. The strings of plump, fleshy leaves look like green pearl necklaces. People often plant string-of-pearls in hanging baskets so that its stems and leaves hang pendulously in a waterfall shape and swing in the wind.
