Angel Wings Senecio is very sensitive to wet soil, so choose a potting soil that drains very well and doesn’t retain too much moisture. A good soil will have lots of perlite or vermiculite for drainage and some organic matter for nutrition. A few handfuls of perlite added to regular store-bought cactus soil will do the trick!

What other plant parents say
The leaves are soft and lush. Beautiful foliage. But whew, this plant is hard to keep alive. It’s a succulent but the information on care is rare. It seemed to thrive more outdoors. But then the pests got to it. Sprayed for pests and the leaves just turned green and sad… I’ve repotted in succulent soil. And it’s in triage. I don’t know if it’ll survive the winter.
This plant when it’s in all its glory is beautiful and soft and lush. But it’s very hard to care for. We only just found out it’s a succulent. NOT a regular foliage plant. So it’s going into triage this winter. Hopefully a small pot, fresh succulent soil, a quick water and leaving it be will bring him back…
