Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to keep it happy during this time of reduced sunlight intensity in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania ⛅.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Angel Wings Senecio after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
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.
