Senecio Rowleyanus prefers a warm, wet, semi-cloudy environment.It has strong adaptability, drought and cold tolerance.It likes rich in organic matter, loose and fertile soil.It grows best in a warm, humid atmosphere with strong scattered light.It is better to grow in loose sandy loam.Generally Senecio Rowleyanus is suitable for growth under medium light conditions, also resistant to weak light.The suitable temperature for growth was 15 -- 25℃, and the temperature for overwintering was 5℃.
Senecio Rowleyanus blooms from December to January of the following year, depending on the temperature and humidity, but if the temperature is too low, it can be pushed back, maybe to March, and you can water more during that time.Senecio Rowleyanus has longer blooming, white flowers, purple stamens, with a strong aroma.
Senecio Rowleyanus can be propagated from cuttings.In the spring and autumn period and the cut sections, half buried in sand or loose soil, moist but not water, will soon be rooting for planting (age season about half month, and winter and summer is not easy to take root, in the basin is long enough even plump but growth situation, such measures can be used to cover.)The Senecio Rowleyanus can be propagated separately.Except for winter when the temperature is too low for plant separation, in other seasons it can be carried out.Potted plants of 2-3 years. In the spring when the pot will be dense pot seedlings, remove the old culture soil, divided into two to several clusters, respectively potted into new plants.The Senecio Rowleyanus can also be propagated by small plants on the stem.During the growing season, small plants are cut off from the stems, planted in culture soil or water, and transplanted to the basin after the small plants have taken root.In addition, seed sowing is also available, but generally used sparingly.
