Mermaid Tail Succulents Bring The Ocean Vibes Right Into Your Home

Who doesn’t love mermaids? House plants may be a challenge to some people, so if you are looking for something a bit low maintenance this house plant may interest you. But, mermaids and houseplants – what is the connection here?

Succulents are ideal for busy people looking for low maintenance plants.

Day 9 of the #succystayathomechallenge is a great day because it features one of my top succulent families- senecio!!! I just LOVE senecio❤ It is such a great companion plant to other succulents (especially echeveria) and it does so well in large planters. And the color😍 Pictured here is senecio vitalis which is typically sold as a tropical (and I winter mine inside as a houseplant) but it thrives outside in the spring/summer and definitely adds a tropical vibe 😁 What's not to love! @succycrazy @succulentlovestory @thedaintygarden @thriftysucculents #fortheloveofsucculents #succulentmania #succulentphotography #beautifulsucculents #theplantyclub #plantsmakepeoplehappy #succulentaddict #ilovesucculents #succulentlife #senecio #bluesucculents #seneciovitalis #houseplantsofig #houseplantclub #girlswithplants #succulentgarden #succulentcollection #succulentjunkie #succugram #instasucculents #succulentsofinsta #succulovers #succulentsonly #succuholic

This plant has an uncanny resemblance to a mermaid or even a whale tail! Also makes one think of the ocean from it’s shape too. Let your imagination run wild!

The Crested Senecio Vitalis has a subtle blue/green colour will blend in almost anywhere. It grows wider, rather than higher and reaches up to 2 feet in height and about 3 to 5 feet wide.

A perfect plant to add a feature to especially against a white wall.  It is also attractive as central plant ‘eye-candy’ too.

Get your own pre-grown Senecio Vitalis succulent on Etsy.
