Senecio haworthii?

Post by Mrs.Green »

I came over this one today , at first glance I thought it was one of these spraypainted plants. But on closer inspection , it was real. Could this be Senecio haworthii? Sorry for the bad pics but I hope they give an idea anyway. The longest leaves are about 6-7 cm. long.

Thank you very much Aeonium2003 and Greenknight :) It sure is a nice plant, looks almost unreal. The question is wether it will grow new leaves that are just as ‘hairy’ as the existing ones? It is a bit less sunny here than in it’s natural habitat..

I don't think the light will affect the hair growth. I think the light mainly only affects the Farina production. :-k

Thank you :) I thought maybe the harsher the conditions it grew in ( in this case sunnier) the more dense ‘fur’ it would produce? Time will tell if it thrives in my care.

I think any kind of protective adaptation, like hair, farina, or pigmentation, will develop more in brighter light and higher temperatures.
