Description

Senecio Crassissimus, colloquially known as Vertical leaf Senecio or Propeller plant is an erect evergreen subshrub up to 24 inches tall and up to 18 inches wide, with thick, purple stems, holding stiff flattened 2 inches long, waxy, silver-grey, obovate leaves, with vivid purple margins, facing outwards. In winter the inflorescence rises from the stem tips up to 2 feet, bearing an open-branched head of bright yellow daisy flowers. Thick erect, stems produce bright yellow daisy-like flowers at the tips in mid-summer to autumn. The large leaves looking as if turned on the edge are the most distinctive feature.

Suitable for Hanging Container, Rock Garden & Xeriscaping

Most succulents need to be watered twice a week during summers and only once in monsoon & winters. Varieties like Haworthias, Crassulas and Gasterias are well suited for low-light indoors and window-sills. If the leaves get too bulky, it is a sign of overwatering & if the leaves look shrivelled it is a sign of less watering.

As a general rule of thumb, all the ones with colourful leaves like Echeverias, Sedeveria and Graptopetalum like bright sunlight and semi shade in extreme summers. They cannot be kept indoors or in full shade. All succulents love morning sun.

You can fertilise your succulent once a month.

Watering tips : Make sure NOT to water on the plant itself. Water directly in the soil. You can use a cup or a glass to make sure the water does not spray on leaves. When watering, make sure water comes out of the drainage hole.
