'Mermaid Succulents' Are A Thing Now And They Bring An Ocean Vibe To Your Home

The entire width of the plant is just like a mermaid's tail as they perfectly branch out with tiny extensions everywhere.

Summer is made for the seaside! Just imagine casually relaxing at a beach while you sip on your favorite mocktail and witness the glorious waves ripple across the sand. However, it might be hard to contemplate (or remember) that right now with the world undergoing a serious pandemic. However, that's not going to stop us from bringing the ocean vibes to our homes! And how better to do such a thing than potted plants. We all love mermaids and this plant brings a magical underwater vibe to any home. You might even feel like you saw one of these in an episode of Spongebob Squarepants! 

While we agree that it's not always easy to take care of house plants, you will notice that succulents fare a lot better. Succulents are ideal for busy people looking for low maintenance plants. Now, what sort of connection can we make with the ocean and a succulent!? Why it's the mermaid succulent of course! The legendary being of the deep seas is now embodied in these amazing houseplants. The resemblance is quite uncanny and you might even think of a whale tail when you look at these succulents. The entire width of the plant is just like a mermaid's tail as they perfectly branch out with tiny extensions everywhere.



 

 



 

 

According to Totally The Bomb, this succulent is called the Crested Senecio Vitalis and while it tends to grow less in height, it totally makes up for that with its breadth. They usually grow up to 2 feet and spread between 3 and 5 feet wide. These plants are commonly known to be of a blue and greenish color, though you may find other variations as well. Nevertheless, they will add some amazing hues to your white walls. This plant is part of the Senecio genus of flowering plants that contain more than 1,000 species.  Senecio succulents can tolerate drought and heat but might not survive cold weather. Senecio is an adorable succulent that's easy to grow indoors with little attention.



 

 

The best part is that this succulent has a truly exotic feel and is very low maintenance for anyone who has a busy schedule. It's typically a tropical plant and thrives outside in the spring/summer seasons. Most people prefer to take it indoors during the winter so we would advise if you are living in a place where the temperature drops rather low.



 

 

You can find several photos on social media of people being absolutely ecstatic about their mermaid succulents. They mostly claim that it's really easy to grow and adds a lot of color and vibe to their homes. These potted succulents can look good anywhere, on your desk, near your television or in your garden! In case you're in awe of them already, let us tell you that these are not any ceramic models and are actually the real deal!
