Lighting for your Senecio
Blobby likes sunlight, he needs to be in a bright place and can take full sun. Be careful in the peak of summer as too much heat from the sun will cause Blobby to burn.
Watering your Senecio Plant
Blobby is a type of succulent which means he stores water in his leaves, he hates his soil being soggy for too long so make sure your pot has drainage holes and you use a cactus or good drainage soil. During summer months water about once a week, during the winter allow the soil to completely dry out between watering. This should equate to watering every two/three weeks. We find we get the best results from watering little and often, using a mister to water has been our trick.
Humidity for your Senecio Plant
Blobby will tolerate normal room humidity.
What fertiliser should I use for my Senecio
Blobby doesn't really need fertiliser. If you're looking for the best results fertilise in the summer once a month when watering.
Repotting your Senecio
You shouldn't have to repot Blobby for a good few years. For soil, a well drained potting soil or cactus mix soil is perfect.
