Senecio radicans String of Bananas

Description

String of Bananas provides a nice contrast to the more common rosette-shaped succulents. Its long stems are lined with banana-shaped leaves, each of which has a translucent crescent or “leaf window” to let sunlight into the leaf interior. It usually blooms between October and December with pompom-like clusters of tiny white¬†flowers that smell like cinnamon. Likes bright, indirect indoor light. Can grow to a foot tall before it begins trailing down the sides of the pot. Photo courtesy of Mountain Crest Gardens.
