Natal Ivy is an epic house plant, which we highly recommend for its versatility, ease of care and beauty. But Ivy it is not! Senecio Macroglossus produces beautiful yellow flowers which reveal its true classification as part of the daisy family.
Native to South Africa (KZN, Eastern Cape), Natal Ivy grows on forest floors and thickets. In your home, this gorgeous plant will happily trail off a bookshelf or wind itself around the structure of a patio awning. We also often use it in moss balls, where they quickly develop a shower of green.
A fast-growing plant, that is happy in shade and bright light, and fairly tolerant of neglect. We cannot sing its praises more.
Please Note: Our Natal Ivy's are well rooted and established plants, but on receipt may not be as full as those depicted in the pictures.
Please note: Considered to be slightly toxic if consumed.
Follow these instructions to keep your Natal Ivy healthy and happy.
Water: Water thoroughly and allow the soil to dry out slightly between watering. Reduce watering during winter/cooler months.
Light: Natal Ivy likes bright, indirect light best, but will tolerate medium light levels. It is also quite happy in areas that receive several hours of direct sunlight.
Humidity: Average humidity
Fertilize: Feed the plant monthly in spring and summer with diluted fertiliser
