senecio “Spear Head” speaks up to its nickname, a unique succulent plant native to South Africa. A woody stem branching vertically with thick blue-green foliage. The leaves can grow to be 1 inch long and have V-shaped tips. A beautiful addition to your succulent collection. Perfect to plant in hanging baskets or tall planters. If planting in your garden, give it a big sunny space to be able to spread and multiply. Like most Senecio varieties, it will do better if kept on the dryer side in good drainage. Will bloom clusters of small yellow flowers that will attract pollinators like butterflies and bees to your garden.
Native to: South Africa
Hardiness: tender soft succulent - will not tolerate frost
Recommended light conditions: full sun
Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Be sure to empty the water that runs into the saucer, succulents do not like to sit in water. Then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.
Watering Needs Outdoors: In the Summer water your succulents every two weeks, by soaking them and letting them dry before watering again. In the Winter water your succulents once a month.

I recieved my plant in excellent condition. The packing was carefully done and the plant was actually larger than I thought it would be. Very pleased!
It is such an unusual succulent and I am fixated by the foliage. It has just been received and repotted ~ hoping that all goes well for this beauty.
Plants arrived in PERFECT condition Packaging is the best I've seen for plants by far! Thank you for the time and care to make my shipment a happy arrival.
They arrive on time and perfect condition. I love them. They already have been plant and look good. New on this but succycrafts give excellent instructions on how to take care of them. Will buy more
I love this succulent! Sadly, both I ordered already look.. not so great. I may have overwatered but hoping to bring it back to life!
Loved how this one looked. It arrived packaged well and very healthy.
Unfortunately I killed it, but that is on me, not them.
