Senecio (Senecio spp.)
Senecio Plant FeaturesSenecios are an interesting group of easy-to-care for succulent houseplants often grown in hanging baskets. These indoor plants have earned a reputation for being a cinch to care for because if they get enough light, they're practically no-fail plants that need only occasional watering.
String of pearls is a variety that has trailing stems, it's often grown in hanging baskets so you can enjoy the plant's interesting texture. But you can also grow string of pearls in a traditional container and let it grow across a horizontal surface, such as a mantle.

Senecio Growing InstructionsGrow senecios in a bright spot. Like most succulents, these are high-light houseplants that will take as much sun (or artificial light) as they can get.
Water senecios sparingly --- only after the soil dries. Take care not to overwater these interesting houseplants.
Senecios don't mind dry air (unlike most houseplants!), but they don't like to be exposed to drafts, so protect this plant from blasts of hot or cold air that may come from drafty windows or heating/cooling vents.
Note: Senecios is not intended for human or animal consumption.
