Senecio care


Watering

As with all succulent plants, this succulent also needs little water. Let the soil dry out well before you start watering again. Watering once every 2 weeks is a good guideline for the Senecio.

Nutrition

Extra plant nutrition is not necessary for the Senecio. If you still want to give the plant some extra boost, it is wise to give it a little extra once a month. Never give plant nutrition in the winter, this is superfluous.

Repotting

Repotting will hardly be necessary for this plant. The Senecio grows slowly, so it doesn't happen often that they have to be repotted. If you still want or need to repot the plant, do so in the spring, so that the plant still has enough time to recover from any damage.

Origin
