If you’re lucky enough to grow a beautifully mutated Mermaid Tail, you should follow the Senecio vitalis`s caring routine. They thrive in direct sunlight. It’s best to please it somewhere outdoor where they can have a full sunbath for at least 6 hours a day. Mermaid Tail is deer resistant and spreads easily. Usually, these succulents are used for garden fillers, so you should keep an eye on them not to overpower the ground.

When it comes to soil and water, Mermaid Tail has typical succulent needs. The soil needs to be well-draining since it`s highly sensitive to root rotting and fungi infections. If you’re planning to plant it in a pot, make sure to add some sand or perlite to a soil mix. For watering, stay on the safe side and use the “soak and dry” method. Make sure that the topcoat of the soil is completely dry before you add water again.

Mermaid Tail is not a cold-hardy succulent. If temperatures in your area tend to get below 30° F (-1.1° C), it’s smart to plant this one in a container you can bring inside when needed. Also, Mermaid Tail is a winter-grower. During the summer, this succulent goes into a dormant phase, so you can safely cut down the water a bit since you don’t want to drown it.
