The Silver Dollar Vine (Xerosicyos danguyi, also called String of Coins) is a vining succulent with plump, nearly round bright-green leaves that fade to silver as they mature. Related to cucumbers, the Silver Dollar Vine thrives when provided a structure to climb, clinging to it with delicate yet strong curling tendrils. When given plenty of light, this vine can grow indefinitely, reaching up to 12 feet long! Because of its succulent nature, the Silver Dollar Vine is an easy, low-maintenance plant. 

Best Locations For Growing Silver Dollar Vine

The Silver Dollar Vine, like other succulents, does best when kept in a spot with bright light, accepting morning sun and requiring indirect bright light throughout the day. With its silver leaves and interesting growth habit, this plant can look quite modern in a bright living room or dining room window, or trailing across a shelf in a bedroom. The Silver Dollar Vine is considered toxic, so care should be taken when placing it in a home with pets and children. 

Silver Dollar Vine Sunlight Requirements

Like many other succulents, the Silver Dollar Vine will do best given plenty of bright light. This vine, however, is sensitive to direct sunlight, so it may need to be protected from the sun’s rays in the afternoon. Place the Silver Dollar Vine in an east-facing window, or set slightly away from a south- or west-facing window. In medium to low light, supplemental lighting may be needed to keep this plant growing strong. 

Silver Dollar Vine Care

Given proper light and care, the Silver Dollar Vine is a low-maintenance and slow-growing vine. Preferring to dry out in between waterings, this plant can stay in a smaller pot for quite some time before needing to be repotted. When repotting becomes necessary after a couple years or so, choose a pot with drainage holes that is only an inch or two larger in diameter. 

Watering Silver Dollar Vine

The most common issue with the Silver Dollar Vine is overwatering. This plant stores water in its leaves, allowing it to go quite a while in between waterings. Because of its succulent nature, allow the soil to dry out completely before watering deeply, until the soil is retaining water. One way to tell that succulents are ready for water is by feeling the leaves. When freshly watered, succulent leaves feel firm and plump. After a month or so after watering, the plant will begin to tap into this stored water, causing the leaves to become bendable, soft, and even wrinkly, ready to be watered. In the winter, indoor plants tend to go dormant or grow very little, needing water even less frequently. 

Feeding Silver Dollar Vine

The Silver Dollar Vine does not need a lot of fertilizer as it grows slowly and is generally a low feeder. During the growing season (spring-summer), fertilize this plant no more than once a month using a diluted succulent or cactus fertilizer. Fertilizing in the winter is not necessary as the Silver Dollar Vine is not likely to grow much. Over-fertilizing will lead to more problems than under-fertilizing.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
