About Senecio Citriformis (4inch)

Senecio citriformis, also known as Curio citriformis "Teardrop String," is a succulent with teardrop-shaped leaves. The plant is characterized by its green to dark green color, with lemon-yellow ends on the leaves resembling a string of pearls growing on the stem. Clusters of small, yellowish flowers bloom from late summer to winter. Senecio citriformis and string of pearls are very similar both have orbicular blades on the stem, the difference is that string of pearls has more distal blades whereas Senecio citriformis blades have pointed tips.

How to care for Senecio Citriformis (4inch)

Sun: Senecio Citriformis is a plant best suited for growing outdoors rather than indoors. It is sun-loving; it thrives in full to half sun and thrives in whole light outdoors. Give it at least two hours of full sun a day. Then, when winter comes, it can be moved indoors to a window or balcony to keep it light.

Temperature: Senecio Citriformis thrives in temperatures between 50-70°F; try to keep it indoors in the winter when temperatures fall below 30°F. In the summer, temperatures above 80°F should be kept in a cool, ventilated area to cool the plant down and prevent it from becoming unhealthy.

Soil: Senecio Citriformis prefers a well-drained, nutrient-rich soil. You can make organic soil by adding coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. This succulent can grow better in this type of soil. If you find preparing difficult, you can buy particular soil for succulents directly in our store. This will solve a lot of trouble for you.

Watering: The watering method is critical to keeping Senecio Citriformis healthy. However, this succulent likes only a little water. Watering once every two weeks may be a good option. Each "teardrop" of Senecio Citriformis stores a certain amount of water. So be careful not to let the soil get too dry.

Pot: The foliage of the hanging bellflower is perfect for hanging pots, allowing the foliage to spread out and create a beautiful landscape.

Propagation: Senecio Citriformis can be propagated by cutting a healthy 4-5cm section of Senecio Citriformis and placing it in a cool, ventilated area to dry the wound. After the wound has dried, please put it on the soil and wait for the roots to develop. You can use a spray bottle to moisten the soil and water it once the Senecio Citriformis has taken root in the pot.

    We pack all shipments by hand. 

    We have many years of experience shipping live succulents and cactus plants. We pay close attention to packing and have developed an expert shipping method. All succulents are packed and protected with polypropylene cotton (this is a stuffing used for dolls). We find this is the most effective material for protecting live plants while in transit. It is important to us that you are able to Keep going and Keep growing without any stress about the quality of the product or packaging.

    Shipping Speed

    In general, it takes 3 to 10 days for plants to arrive after you place your order. All orders will be shipped out 48 hours after you place them. We ship the orders on work days(from Monday to Saturday) and all year round. In normal conditions, it will take 3-10 days for you to receive the package. Estimated shipping times are offered as needed.

    HOLIDAYS: During weeks in which a holiday occurs - Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, etc. - shipping may be delayed until the following week.

    EXTREME WEATHER NOTICE: The Next Gardener reserves the right to hold shipments during storms or periods of extreme heat or cold. This is to ensure your plant does not suffer while it is in transit.

    Winter shipping

    We insist on shipping succulents to our customers all year round. However due to the extreme winter weather, although we pack succulents with as much protective material as possible, plants are still at increased risk of frost on their way to colder areas. We highly recommend adding one 72-hour heat pack to your order or you can request a hold on the package until it warms up.

    Please note that The Next Gardener is not responsible for packages that suffer cold damage without a heat pack. We cannot control the weather. Order at your own risk.

    Hawaii, Alaska, and Other US Territories

    Fortunately, shipping is available to Alaska, Guam, and other U.S. Territories. However, due to numerous factors beyond our control, including customs checks and shipping delays, free shipping to Hawaii and Puerto Rico is not an option. And we can not provide the 14-day quality guarantee for orders going to Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The buyer will assume all risk of damage when a delivery is delayed. We appreciate your understanding.

    Sorry. No International Shipping for now!!!
