When I searched for Senecio rowleyanus, they are all round in shape. I actually have the green round type last time but it died.

Then no chance of getting it already unless you can grow it successfully. I thought if from Cameron Highlands, still quite possible to go buy. I read from the net that the round String of Pearls preferred cooler temperature and bright light only.
