Pot your Senecio up as soon as you receive it. Use a pot with holes in the base and a matching saucer. This will allow the plant to drain off well. Alternatively, place  a plastic inner pot in a pretty planter with no holes, but then you need to have a layer or potsherds or hydro-pellets for the pot to stand on, to keep it off the bottom so it won't stand in the water. Mix sharp sand into your potting compost and plant your Senecio at the correct depth. Fill with more potting compost but do leave a margin for watering. Water generously to start with and stand the pot with your Senecio in a warm, light spot. This strong houseplant tolerates full sun.


Senecio is drought tolerant and requires moderate watering - the root ball can even be fairly dry. Best is just a small amount, now and then, preferably with rain water. Add some plant food to your watering can from spring until August. Ensure good drainage- too much water in the base of the pot will really not be tolerated.
Water the pot less in the winter and really only when the soil feels dry. Senecio needs to go in a cooler room in the winter.
This plant makes a terrific summer patio/decking plant.


Senecio (ragwort) is a type of succulent that stores water in its fleshy leaves, allowing it to tolerate drought.
Senecio is classified under Asteraceae.
It's actually all a bit unclear about the name of this plant and this is currently being revised. Various varieties of Senecio are being checked for their DNA and reclassified and some will then fall under Pentacalia. For now, we will continue to call it by its better known name.
