I think I had wrongly placed this under Crassulaceae since long… please suggest some links to conclude the id, this seems to be from Asteraceae, recorded from Nauni in H.P.
Posting this fortnight as its ruling out belongs to this fortnight..
May be in exotic Senecio (Asteraceae). Some related species are in eFI are there.
Senecio rowleyanus I hope
yes, … definitely string of pearls: Senecio rowleyanus.. a popular hanging basket houseplant
look at the flower and next time you see them smell- smells of cinnamon
(how many asteraceae flowers you know that smells of exotic spice?) but if you are allergic to cinnamon you’ll sneeze and dont keep it in you bedroom… headaches occur
Botanically the round shape of the leaves and a small vertical “glass window” identifies all these stringed senecios.. no matter what the shape of the leaves (See your pic 2)
hope this helps

great, that small glass or jelly like window clinches the identification. did you smell the flowers. they are so lovely and unique. did you notice a cinnamon type aroma? i see it esp in southern California, where the climate allows growth of these peas in long luxuriant cascades with very many flowers, people cant resist smelling the flowers,
