Senecio pendulus (Forssk.) Sch.Bip.
A creeping succulent plant that roots where it touches the ground.
Its stems seem to be made of wax, they are curved and take on all shades of green and with the prolonged exposure to the direct sun turn purple.
You have to be careful during decanting or moving as the stems break easily. The surface of the plant is covered with sparse white dots rough to the touch. Its flower is bright red.
Synonym: Kleinia pendula.
- It requires a lot of light throughout the year, however, avoid direct sunlight especially during the hottest hours of the day.
- It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 7 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.
- Water moderately and only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water it once a week in spring and summer, reduce it to once every two months in autumn and to suspend it completely in winter.
- The best soil is a well draining one, for example formed by a mix of peat and pumice so that water does not stagnate.
- They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
