Senecio mikanioides (Variegated German Ivy)
- Light: Medium to high light.
- Water: Allow top inch of soil to dry out between watering.
German Ivy is native to South Africa but it gained popularity when Europeans discovered it and brought the plant back to Europe hence its common name. This variegated variety has a very similar appearance to English Ivy, despite not being a true ivy. It is actually more tolerant of the warm and dry conditions in houses than true ivy is. If you keep German Ivy in a well-lit spot it will produce yellow daisy-like flowers. It is also a fantastic climber or it can be kept in a hanging basket.
