The Senecio (sen-NEESH-shee-oh) Blue Everest is a very interesting succulent plant whose ancestors were two Senecios that lived on top of mountains in Africa's Cape Province, not in Asia as the name suggests.

Standing at 25cm in height, these are slow growers, but with a lot of TLC, they can grow up to 4ft tall! Our Senecio Blue Everests come in a 15cm nursery pot. 

Quick Care Tips:

Light: Prefers bright light but will also tolerate in-direct light. Perfect for windowsills.

Water: Allow soil to completely dry between waters, then water and be sure to drain any excess water left as this will create a root rot problem.

Toxicity: Poisonous if eaten, so ensure they're out the way of small humans and furry creatures.

Interesting Facts: 

They naturally grow a pale white powder/wax on their leaves, don't wipe this off as it's their natural sunscreen!

They belong to the Senecio family which also includes the String of Pearls, String of Dolphins and String of Teardrops. 

They grow red, white and yellow flowers on the end of long stems all throughout the year.

Propagating:

Fairly easy to propagate, and can be done any time of the year; either place trailing stems back in the pot so they can root into the soil and make the plant look fuller, or take a cutting and place on top of loose soil and lightly press down so the leaves can start rooting.

Things to look out for:

Overwatering: succulents, in general, are very prone to overwatering as they store a lot of their water in their leaves, don't allow to sit in water or this can cause root rot which could cause the stems and leaves to have a mushy appearance and die.

Underwatering: If underwatered, the leaves and stems can look empty and shrivelled/dried up.
