Spear Head Succulent Plants for Sale Online

Spear Head (Senecio kleiniiformis) is a slow-growing succulent with unique spear-shaped foliage. This plant can grow up to 12 inches tall, and its branches can trail up to 2 feet long. In late summer through early fall, this plant will produce pale yellow or white flowers. Because Spear Head plants are succulents, they do not require a lot of careful attention.

These plants prefer to be placed in a shaded area or given morning sunlight. They also require well-draining soil conditions to avoid root rot. Fertilize your plant lightly to avoid leggy growth. Also, your plant will only need to be watered once every 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the time of year.

Fertilizing your Spear Head plant will help encourage strong and healthier growth. We recommend feeding your plant once a month with a liquid fertilizer specifically for succulents. Only fertilize your plant from spring to late summer. You can simply follow the instructions for the specific fertilizer you have on hand. We do recommend watering your plant after fertilizing. Doing so will help the roots soak up all the proper nutrients throughout the soil.

What is the Best Soil for My Senecio Kleiniiformis?

Your Spear Head succulent will need to be planted in well-draining soil potting mix. We recommend using a cactus mix to ensure optimum drainage. If your succulent does not have well-draining soil conditions, it could retain too much moisture and cause root rot disease.

How Often Should I Water My Spear Head Succulent Plant?

How Often Should I Water My Spear Head Succulent Plant?

When your Spear Head plant is new and young, it is best to water it frequently. However, once your plant is well established, you do not have to water often. The best rule of thumb is to water your succulents once every 2 to 3 weeks during their growing season. When you are watering your plant, water until it is thoroughly moist and allow any excess water to drain from the bottom of the container. You only need to water Spear Head plants once a month during the winter.

What Type of Sunlight Does My Senecio kleiniiformis Succulent Need?

What Type of Sunlight Does My Senecio kleiniiformis Succulent Need?

Spear Head plants prefer to be in partial shade rather than bright sunlight. This plant does well in the direct morning sun but must be in the partly shaded afternoon sun. If your plant receives too much sunlight, the foliage could burn and cause damage to your plant. You can place your succulent near a window or on a lightly shaded porch.
