|Senecio pendulus, native to Somalia and Kenya, forms prostrate mats of slender, waxy "cucumber"shaped stems. Stems are grayish-green, with delicate patterns of pale green. Stems often turn purplish in strong llight. This plant has an unusual habit with the stems growing downward into the soil, only to re-emerge a few inches away in a repeating pattern! Known as the "Inchworm" for this peculiar habit. Has typical "compound" flowers of the genus, forming "pom-poms" comprised of many tiny red flowers. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Bright light with ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Less water during winter months. Protect from frost.|
