I'm not sure what this could be Judy. Is that a spike sticking up? Without closer and clearer pictures it's impossible to say. Sorry!

Unknown succulent

I have one of these. It's a Senecio crassissimus. The leaves resemble snap-peas, and the stalk is purplish in colour.

Thank you yes this is the proper name. Now that I know the name I can find how to properly care for it.

another kind of Senecio
by: pats

it is now 2016, bless the internet, it doesn't get rid of anything. I have this plant or one that looks a lot like it but mine has flat shiney leaves, not the fat succulent leaves like a Senecio crassissimus. Mine is tall,upright, with several stocks and several but not all stocks are lopping over. I got it from a friend who said it needs little water but I don't want to under water it either and does it need fertilizer?

Senecio Care
by: Jacki

Senecio as a rule don't require much fertilizer - any of these plants really don't like overfeeding. Just give it a tiny amount a couple of times in the growing season - never when they're dormant.
