Mermaid Tail Succulents Bring The Ocean Vibes Right Into Your Home

Do you know someone who is obsessed with mermaids? There’s something magical about these mysterious creatures, and we’ve heard so many legends about them.

Would you have any of these at home? Just kidding. You can’t have a mermaid at home, but you can definitely have a Mermaid Tail succulent.

Succulents are great for those who can’t really take care of their plants. Some people just can’t look after a plant.

Some people don’t know how to do it. That’s what makes succulents so attractive. You’d all love to have this low-maintenance plant at home.

Day 9 of the #succystayathomechallenge is a great day because it features one of my top succulent families- senecio!!! I just LOVE senecio❤ It is such a great companion plant to other succulents (especially echeveria) and it does so well in large planters. And the color😍 Pictured here is senecio vitalis which is typically sold as a tropical (and I winter mine inside as a houseplant) but it thrives outside in the spring/summer and definitely adds a tropical vibe 😁 What's not to love! @succycrazy @succulentlovestory @thedaintygarden @thriftysucculents #fortheloveofsucculents #succulentmania #succulentphotography #beautifulsucculents #theplantyclub #plantsmakepeoplehappy #succulentaddict #ilovesucculents #succulentlife #senecio #bluesucculents #seneciovitalis #houseplantsofig #houseplantclub #girlswithplants #succulentgarden #succulentcollection #succulentjunkie #succugram #instasucculents #succulentsofinsta #succulovers #succulentsonly #succuholic

The Mermaid Tail succulent looks just like the tale of a mermaid. Some would rather say it looks like the tail of a whale. It’s time to bring the ocean inside your home!

The Crested SenecioVitalis has an amazing blue, green leaves. It grows up to 2 feet in height and “expands” to about 3-5 feet wide.

The cactus is native to the eastern cape of South Africa. Believe it or not, it thrives well in winter and “sleeps” in summer.

You can keep the mermaid cactus indoor and outdoor. It’s resistant to drought and thrives well when planted in sand or well-drained soils. It also likes sunny or lightly shaded spots.

Place these beauties near a white wall to get the perfect contrast. You can have the ocean right in your home!
