HELP - it's disappearing! String Of Beads/Pearls

Yes I think thats the reason - over watering. Since the beads looked dry thought to water them. I'll let the compost dry out. No there have been no pests. Thankyou very much for the information.

When you say new signs of growth in the summer, does that still apply if all the beads have dryed out?

This is my second time buying this plant (since the first one shrivelled away ). Did some reading on the net, and found out that the plant likes to be watered fully then the soil should let to dry about an inch/inch & half deep. I've roughly followed that. However the beads are drying out. In some places the the stems from the base are drying out. The soil is very moist at the moment. The window approximatly south-facing & on the right of the plant about a meter away,

(sorry about the distorted image)


 It makes me very sad to see this happening & not being able to do anything  

I really like this plant. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? is it too late to help it?
