Planting And Care

plant care is not difficult but does require vigilance.

The vines need to be trained early when they are young.

You may use plant ties or just weave them through trellis sections.

Fertilize the plant in spring just before new growth appears.

Pinch off the tips of the vines in the second year to promote branching which will fill the trellis with bushy growth.

Senecio Vitalis Blue Care

The deep planting encourages the developing stem to send out roots to help stabilize the plant and perhaps eliminate the need for staking. Also, deep planting keeps Bangada bulbs cool when temperatures soar. Enrich the soil with leaf mold or well-rotted organic matter to encourage good drainage.

Sunlight Full sun
Watering Dry to medium
Soil well-drained soil
Temperature 30 to 40F
Fertilizer Apply any organic fertilizer
