For a rather unusual trailing succulent that originates from West Africa, the Fish Hooks Succulent or Senecio radicans as it is botanically named, is definitely worth a look. With small and green fish-hook or banana-like foliage, it is obvious where this plant got its common name. Being drought tolerant, it is easy to grow and will put up with a fair bit of neglect. From the same Asteraceae family of plants as the String of Pearls, it has a similar habit but the Fish Hooks Succulent is easier to care for.

Best Locations For Growing Fish Hooks Succulent

Being fairly adaptable, the Fish Hooks Succulent can be grown in any room. However, this plant is considered mildly toxic so care must be taken if deciding to grow it around children or pets. 

Fish Hooks Succulent Sunlight Requirements

The Fish Hooks Succulent likes to grow in bright, indirect light, but will also tolerate some shade. It is best to avoid placing it near a south-facing window though, as the harsh midday sun can burn the foliage. 

Fish Hooks Succulent Care

If allowed to trail, this stunning succulent can grow up to 8 feet in length. However, if it needs to be kept smaller, it can be easily pruned. The Fish Hooks Succulent is a tough and hardy plant and will survive in any indoor space as long as the temperature does not fall below 60 °F. High humidity is not necessary, although to promote vigorous growth, regular misting or some time spent in a humid bathroom will help. 

Watering Fish Hooks Succulent

Storing water in its leaves, this succulent can go for long periods without water. Requiring watering every 2 to 4 weeks, it is important to allow the soil to dry out between waterings, otherwise, the roots may rot. After watering, it is advisable to allow any surplus water to drain away, which will help prevent the plant from sitting in overly wet soil. To control its size or to encourage fresh growth, the stems can be cut just above a leaf node using a clean, sharp pair of scissors. 

Feeding Fish Hooks Succulent

To encourage strong and healthy growth, this succulent can be fed every 4 to 6 weeks during the growing season with a weakly diluted houseplant fertilizer.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
