Is it normal for my string of pearl plant to be sticky?

The sticky substance is likely caused by an infestation.
Treat your plant with Neem Oil.
Neem Oil is safe for people and pets!

Here is some links with more information.

Repotting String of Pearls

I am worried about what will happen when I attempt to re-pot this gorgeous plant. The pot it’s in is actually disintegrating and it must be re-potted. I think the current soil will just crumble apart- so…what do you suggest?
Thank you.

Re-potting a mature plant should always be undertaken with care so as to avoid damaging the plant or the roots. The easiest way to re-pot your String of Pearls might be to just hold the plant over the new pot and remove the old disintegrating pot while letting the soil fall into the new pot.

String of Pearls Succulent Plant

I purchased this plant about a week ago. I planted two plants in two small clay pots outside. Both plants were small. After several days, some of the beads turned white. What would cause this?

ANSWERS

If the "white" color is actually a powdery-like substance, it could be some mineral residue from the water you may have used to water the plants. More than likely the plants are experiencing a little "shock" from the replant and once they adjust to the new pots and conditions they should be fine. Be sure to not overwater and hopefully you placed them in a sandy-type soil.

Chain of Pearls Succulent

My string of pearl’s balls seem to be drying up. What could be the cause? It is in a dish garden with cactus and other succulents.

Shriveling or drooping of succulents is common and usually caused by watering problems, usually overwatering. Excessive water can damage the roots, causing the plant to be unable to absorb water and leading to wilting. String of pearls would only dry up from underwatering if it was left alone without water for weeks or months. Proper watering procedures are described in this article:

https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/cacti-succulents/string-of-pearls/string-of-pearls-plant.htm

First, if some of the pearls near the base are still healthy, cut off the dried up pearls to leave only the healthy ones. This will give the roots less foliage to support. Then, work on correcting the watering schedule. Also check this article:

I have received some seeds for the string of pearls plant. I was wondering exactly how to start the seeds. I found a website once but can’t seem to find it again.

There is very little detailed information on sowing the seeds from String Of Pearl.

I did find that you should sow the seeds directly on top of your soilless mix. Keep moist and warm. Germination may be very slow.
Do not allow the seedlings to dry out.
Propagating from cuttings is the recommended method.

Here is an article on the care of 'String of Pearls' that will help you be sure you are giving it the right care: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/cacti-succulents/string-of-pearls/string-of-pearls-plant.htm

During the life of the plant you will come across some dead strands every now and then. I would recommend trimming off any dead stems and pearls, as well as any stems that have lost a lot of their ‘beads.’

String of Pearl Plant

I live in Calgary, AB, CA. I am a plant lover. I have ordered string of pearls seeds from Amazon since I cannot find a plant here. The inside temp of my home is usually 18 – 20 degrees Celsius. Calgary is a dry place. Will the plant survive indoors? Is there any special care I should know about? Thanks.

Yes, this succulent plant usually does well indoors. The main thing to know is that string of pearls prefers dry, desertlike conditions, so it doesn't need to be watered very often, and it prefers the type of potting soil used to grow cacti:
