Overhead protection from trees, if you can find this and still have a dappled sun area, is a good place to plant or locate containers outside. Partial sun to light shade encourages spread of this attractive, matting groundcover.
Whatever situation you choose for growing blue chalk sticks, plant it in a fast-draining, gritty mix, as with other succulents. Sandy soils are appropriate for this plant.
Clay or other non-draining soils can quickly be the end of chalk stick, as can too much water. Limit watering as part of care for Senecio blue chalk sticks. Allow periods of dryness between waterings.
Fertilize with low-nitrogen plant food, diluted or use a succulent plant food for container plants. Some recommend a weak compost tea fertilizer for succulent plants.
Cut back in late summer, if needed. Propagate more blue chalk sticks from cuttings for another display. This blue-green plant is deer and rabbit resistant and appears to also survive fire.
