SENECIO ARTICULATUS 'CANDLE PLANT' SUCCULENT

 

Senecio Articulatus is a very unusual succulent popularly known as "Candle Plant, "Hot Dog" or "Cigar Plant". It has grey-green swollen cigar shaped stems that are etched with dark green markings. A cluster of small ivy shaped leaves appear on the top of the stem.

The leaves are grey/green on the top with a tinge of purple underneath. The candle plant is mainly grown for its unusual candle-like stems that join each other and its attractive cluster of foliage. Flowers are pale yellow and bloom in spring/summer. Like all succulents a well drained soil mix is beneficial and requires part sun/part shade locations. Candle plants are best grown in containers and do well indoors on a well lit window sill. Can also be grown outdoors as a container plant in part sun/shade locations.
