Senecio macroglossus

Senecio macroglossus, the Natal ivy, marguerite ivy, climbing senecio or wax ivy, is a species of flowering plant in the family Asteraceae, native to southern Africa, from Zimbabwe and Mozambique to eastern South Africa.

Caring for senecio

1) Keep temperatures between 20-26°C as it is their active growth stage

2) Avoid misting or wetting the leaves as it can cause rot

3) Pot it in at least 80-90% mineral based substrate as it is sensitive to water and may rot easily when soil is waterlogged

4) Propagate by cuttings or seeds

5) Place it in a bright, airy location receiving a mix of direct and filtered sunlight

6) Water only when the soil is bone dry
