Senecio Serpens (Blue Chalk Stick)

  • A native of South Africa, blue chalk succulents (Senecio serpens) are often a favorite of succulent growers.
  • Senecio talinoides subs. mandraliscae, also called blue chalk sticks, is possibly a hybrid and was found in Italy.
  • The South African native is called blue chalk succulent or blue fingers for its attractive bluish, finger-like leaves.
  • It also produces white summer blooms.
  • Imported from Japan
SOIL - Try our recommended Organic Soil
  • Well-draining soil.
  • Achieve this is by adding horticultural-grade sand and grit to the compost component of the soil.
  • A good starting ratio for the mix’s components is one-third compost, one-third horticultural-grade sand, and one-third grit.
  • If the soil in your current container takes longer than a minute to drain, consider repotting with a potting soil designed specifically for cacti and succulents.
FERTILIZER - Try our recommended Organic Fertilizer
  • During the growing season, a balanced fertilizer, which has been diluted to 1/4 strength, can be added to the water for each watering.
  • A balanced fertilizer is one that has roughly equal proportions of Nitrogen, Phosphorous, and Potassium.
  • A 10-10-10 fertilizer diluted to 1/4 strength is ideal.
LIGHT
  • It will do best in full, direct sunlight for 6 to 8 hours each day, but you can also grow it outdoors in partial shade.
  • Indoors, place your plant in a south-facing window or the brightest window you have.
  • If you can’t give the succulent enough direct sunlight, place it 6 to 12 inches under white fluorescent lights for up to 16 hours daily to supplement the natural light it receives.
WATER
  • Blue chalk stick is drought tolerant once it’s established, seldom needing water during the growing season.
  • Soak your plant deeply every three or four weeks, but let the soil dry out completely between watering sessions.
  • New plants need more frequent water – up to once a week during the first spring and summer.
  • Water container and indoor plants about once a week or whenever the soil is dry throughout the container.
