I've never see this plant with so many leaves and looking so happy, Tarev! My plant is like the rest of the photos. Has yours ever bloomed? How do you treat it? I have been keeping mine fairly moist and humid, I tend to break off pieces every time I move it. I do root them.

Hi Karen, I try to keep it cool and dry during winter..one time I had it indoors, this time it is sheltered under my growcamp outdoors so it gets protected from too much rain.
When temps are really hot it will immediately drop the leaves, but when it is cool and sunny in Spring it will make the new leaves happily. I provide shade for this one during summer, it is too hot and dry here. This is one Senecio I have not been able to make some blooms yet..still hoping though. Big Grin I adjust my watering, less in winter, just a little more during Spring and Summer, but I really have to allow it to dry.

Thanks for the info. I've been letting my dry out between waterings. I keep hoping for blooms. Have you seen the web pics of the gorgeous pink blooms they can form? I have mine in the greenhouse now. I can't wait to see if this summer will make a difference to it. I have had it inside the house in an east facing window every other year.
