Senecio Mandraliscae, "Blue Chalksticks"

$10.00
Native to southern Africa, Senecio Mandraliscae, or a variety of "Blue chalkstick,” succulents can grow branches and get to about 2 feet tall.  They can flower in winter thru spring. 
Light
Most succulents prefer direct sunlight to bright light, but very intense bright light may lead to "sun stressing" that causes a change in coloring in some species.  Sun stressed succulents may have more bright pink coloring vs the standard green color. 
Water/Humidity
They are used to a more arid environment, and like lower humidity.  Water thoroughly when the leaves begin to get thinner or look wrinkled. 
Soil needs
Succulents like to dry out significantly between watering.  Only repot this plant when it is visibly too large for its current pot, or you see roots coming out the top or bottom of the pot.  When repotting, use a fast draining succulent potting mix, or amend your standard potting soil with extra perlite or small lava rock to increase how fast the soil drains water. 
Propagation
You can propagate these by seed, but we prefer to use stem cuttings.  Let open cuts on the freshly cut stems harden or callus over for at least a day before repotting them in fast draining soil.  When there are little to no roots on stem cuttings, the soil should be on the drier side so the stem cuttings don't rot.  Lightly water when the soil is the most dry, or when the leaves begin to get thinner or look wrinkled. 
Toxicity
This plant is toxic, and not pet friendly, so please use care around people and pets in your home.
