Q.Senecio Angel Wings Underwatered Or Overwatered?

Zone CT10 2DR | Gilly Spence added on September 21, 2022 | Answered

I have recently bought this senecio angel wings plant and the leaves seem to be drooping and curling a bit more than the pictures I have seen of this plant, also the top leaves seem much more silvery grey with the lower ones a bit green Google suggests over watering or underwatering, depending of course on which article you read. I thought this was an easy to care for plant and suitable for where I live (on the coast) I had never seen this plant before and fell in love with it at the garden centre as soon as I saw it, I really would like to keep it in best health. Any advice greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Depending on your watering habits, it could be either! I would let the soil dry, completely, down to 1/3 of the container between waterings, and make sure that your soil is very well draining. A fungicide may help.
