Senecio mandraliscae

Posted by on June 24th 2017 in

Senecio mandraliscae (Blue Chalk)

Also known as Senecio talinoides and Blue Chalk Sticks. It can tolerate many different growing conditions, from sun to shade, as well as drought. As far as succulents go, this one is somewhat more rot-resistant than others.

Light
Most varieties of succulents need at least half a day to a full day of sunlight.

Planting
Remove plants from their pots and plant making sure the soil level remains the same depth on the plant.

Soil
Succulents need good draining soil. For container planting you can purchase cactus soil or incorporate sand, gravel or volcanic rock for better drainage. The container you are planting in should have a drainage hole.

Watering
After planting, water in well and allow the soil to dry between waterings. Water when soil is dry and the sun is shining. Succulents don’t like to have wet feet.

Fertilizer
Most succulents need very little fertilizer. Watering with a well balanced fertilizer once a month will be all they need.
