How to care for Senecio Dubitabilis


Senecio Dubitabilis does best in dry soil and should only be watered sparingly.


When it comes to the Senecio Dubitabilis, a potting soil that is too moist can cause problems. For this reason, it's important to use a soil mix that is well-draining and does not retain too much moisture. A soil that includes perlite or vermiculite for drainage and organic matter for nutrition is ideal. You can achieve this by simply adding a few scoops of perlite to your store-bought cactus soil.


Senecio Dubitabilis may not thrive and may drop leaves if it does not have enough sunlight. Place it less than 3 feet from a window to increase the potential for growth.


During the wintertime, it is common for Senecio Dubitabilis to go dormant and their growth may slow down, so waterings should be spaced out more during this period.


Ploi's records do not contain confirmed information on the toxicity of this particular plant. In the event of accidental ingestion of plant material with questionable toxicity by you, a family member, or a pet, it is always a good idea to consult a healthcare professional.


Senecio Dubitabilis enjoys dry environments, but misting the plant or providing extra humidity can create an environment for harmful fungi to thrive on the leaves.


The growth of Senecio Dubitabilis is not rapid and it doesn't necessitate any extra fertilization. By replacing its potting soil once a year, it should receive ample nutrition. It is important to note that plants obtain their energy from the sun's rays, not from fertilizers.
