This plant's common names - Variegated Wax Ivy, Senecio Wax Ivy, and Variegated Jade Vine - all point to its succulent-like nature and is called an ivy only because of its resemblance to ivy's leaf shape and coloring. Grown as a houseplant in the Pacific NW, Variegated Wax Ivy will mound somewhat before trailing down or, if given support, climb upwards. Sources vary on the mature size of this senecio, ranging from 12 to 30 inches long. As is common with succulents, stems that break off may be rooted in water, or put back in the pot. Lovely in a hanging basket, it's also a smart way to keep this plant out of the reach of chewing pets. Don't overwater this beauty, and give it lots of indirect sunlight.
