String of Bananas (Senecio Radicans)
The Senecio radicans is a vining succulent that can grow up to three feet long.
Correspondingly, why is my succulent growing babies?
They are clones, meaning that they are genetically identical to the mother plant.” Since they are clones of the parent, this is one of the easiest ways to grow more succulents. Tiny pups eventually grow from the healthy, properly positioned adult plant.
Likewise, people ask, do succulents spread on their own?
Many succulents multiply themselves through division, but some cacti will have small plants appear along the ribs or leaf edges of the plant. When the plantlets are big enough to handle easily, they can be removed.
Where do you hang succulents?

Succulents like to have their roots soaked with water but then dry out quickly. Then, watered again after the soil has been dry for a few days. Lightly spraying succulents with water can help them survive for a period of time, but if you really want to thrive, they need to follow the “soak and dry” method.
Find offshoots or pups to be removed. Once an offshoot or a pup has grown large enough or has started producing roots, they can be removed from the mother plant. Try to get some roots when removing the pup.
Since watering is the usual cause for their decay, you should determine if the plant has been over or under watered. If the stem is mushy or rotting, it’s probably overwatered. If the leaves are puckered, the plant needs more water. Don’t worry if there are dry, dying leaves at the base.
Succulents require good soil drainage to perform their best, and hanging baskets with coco-fiber or sphagnum moss liners are perfect to provide that drainage. … And, as long as you plant them in a gritty potting mix, which is best for succulents, the plants will thrive.
Here are some of the plant characteristics to look for when identifying succulents:
- Leaf – shape, size and thickness.
- Color – of leaves, flowers or stems.
- Markings or bumps on the leaves.
- Flower – shape, color, number of blooms and petals.
- Stem – color, texture, length.
- Ciliate hairs.
- Epicuticular wax.
- Spikes, spines or smooth.
