Thin, needle-like foliage grows from tall, color-matched stems, giving the Senecio Barbertonicus a tree-like look. The foliage grows densely and gently curves upward, creating a full, lush plant. Senecio Barbertonicus, sometimes known as Himalaya, is a member of the succulent family. This plant is easy to maintain and thrives in a dry, sunny area.
Best Locations For Growing Senecio Barbertonicus
This plant naturally grows in dry, warm climates, which is what the Senecio Barbertonicus needs when grown as a houseplant. No area of the home will replicate what this plant has in nature, but a sunny room with average or low humidity is a good choice. Living rooms, family rooms, entryways, and bedrooms are possible locations.
Senecio Barbertonicus Sunlight Requirements
Senecio Barbertonicus craves bright indirect sunlight. An end table or desk that receives 4 to 6 hours of daily daylight will be a good home for this plant. Plants in low light may decline, while plants in direct sunlight may burn.
Senecio Barbertonicus Care
Senecio Barbertonicus likes to be warm. This plant hails from southeast Africa, so warm, dry conditions are best. Keep this houseplant away from heating or cooling vents in favor of a warm spot with a more consistent temperature.
Watering Senecio Barbertonicus
This plant stores water in its foliage, so it is naturally drought tolerant. Let the soil dry out before watering the Senecio Barbertonicus. Feel the soil or lift the container to gauge the dryness. When in doubt, wait another day or two before watering because this plant would rather be underwatered instead of overwatered.
Feeding Senecio Barbertonicus
Succulents learn to grow and even thrive in harsh conditions, and because of this, the Senecio Barbertonicus does not need to be fed often. Use a fertilizer low in nitrogen once each spring to encourage new growth.
