A nice trailing succulent - Kleinia petraea - Senecio jacobsenii-weeping jade-trailing jade..

Got this one last June, and now also in bloom..also making new leaves very slowly.

New leaves at the tip of the vine, growing like shingles, overlapping.

Pretty! I've had mine for years and it's never flowered for me! Any hints on how to encourage it?

Not really sure how it got triggered to bloom..I just got it last June. I did not expect it either as I am used to plants dropping any developing buds once it gets to a new environment. But since it proceeded to bloom, I think it loves high ambient heat but still to be in part sun/part shade. And that is what happened when it came home, after about a week our heat wave came when ambient temps were not lower than 100F during the day with cooling down at night only at low 80's and after the heat wave our temps has been just at high 80's to mid 90's, night time at low 70's...then another heat wave, that is the time I saw it bloom. The care tag says water as it approaches dryness, made a deviation on it, since it is just too dry here, gave it just enough dampness on the root zone. It drys out so fast anyways.

Beautiful bloom. I have a very small one, but I didn't know that it's a trailer and not an upright plant. I was wondering why the longest stem was growing crooked. Hilarious! Rolling on the floor laughing I brought mine indoors, prior to the monsoon we we've been having. It was also looking a littled peaked, so I thought it needed a little less sun or that it's a houseplant. I guess it needs to go back out in the heat, in the shade of course.

I will have to observe this plant later on when winter weather comes..our winters are oftentimes rainy..will see how it will acclimate to it.

Its blooms are done now..so just watching how it continues to grow the new leaves.. just thankful too our temps are now cooler starting at 58F in the mornings, and still reaching high 80's to low 90's during the day, just right for this plant.
