Monstrosus 'Petra'. Let’s dive into the care tips that will keep these plants thriving!

Senecio crassissimus

General Care

Senecio plants are known for their striking, foliage. And this one is no exception with its hint of lavender trim. This plant is a succulent species of flowering plants in the daisy family Asteraceae, and is endemic to the island of Madagascar off the east coast of Africa.

Light

Senecios love bright, indirect sunlight. Place them near a south or east-facing window where they can bask in plenty of light without being scorched by direct sun.

Soil

These succulents prefer well-draining soil. A cactus or succulent mix is perfect. If you’re mixing your own, combine potting soil with sand or perlite to enhance drainage.

Water

Water your Senecio sparingly. Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so when in doubt, it's better to underwater than overwater.

Kalanchoe Pink Butterfly

General Care

The Kalanchoe Pink Butterfly is a showstopper with its vibrant pink and green leaves. It’s not just a pretty face—this plant is hardy and relatively easy to care for.

Light

Kalanchoes thrive in bright, indirect light. They can handle some direct sunlight, especially in the morning, but avoid the intense afternoon sun which can scorch their leaves.

Soil

Use a well-draining succulent mix. This plant doesn’t like to sit in water, so good drainage is key to preventing root rot.

Water

Water your Kalanchoe deeply but infrequently. Allow the top 1-2 inches of soil to dry out before watering again. During winter, reduce watering as the plant goes into a dormant period.

Crassula Rubricaulis ‘Candy Cane’

General Care

This striking Crassula variety features beautiful red-edged leaves that resemble candy canes, making it a festive addition to any plant collection.

Light

‘Candy Cane’ Crassulas thrive in bright, direct sunlight. A sunny window is perfect to keep those vibrant red edges vivid.

Soil

Like most succulents, they need well-draining soil. A cactus mix or a blend of potting soil with added perlite or pumice.

Water

Water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. Overwatering can be detrimental, so err on the side of caution. In winter, reduce watering frequency as the plant's growth slows down.

Cereus Repandus f. Monstrosus 'Petra'

General Care

‘Petra’ is a fascinating cactus with an intriguing, sculptural form. It's a low-maintenance plant that's perfect for busy plant parents.

Light

This cactus loves bright light, including direct sunlight. Place it in a south-facing window where it can soak up the sun.

Soil

Use a well-draining cactus mix. If using regular potting soil, make sure to add sand or perlite to improve drainage.

Water

Water your Cereus sparingly. During the growing season (spring and summer), allow the soil to dry out between waterings. In winter, reduce watering to once a month or even less.
