Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

In many areas, Senecio Haworthii is grown indoors as a pot plant, but it can also grow outdoors in areas where winters are not severe; ideally, the temperature should not drop below 7°C (45°F).Plant in full sun and give little to no irrigation but with occasional summer irrigation will hold the leaves on the stems which otherwise fall off. Makes an interesting and wild plant in the garden or in a large pot. Preferably, the soil for container-grown plants should be a mixture of two parts sand, one part loam, one part pea gravel, and one part peat moss. Plants should perform well in soils of pH 6.0 to 7.5.
