Description

Cineraria Hansa The Cineraria plant, the term cineraria means “ash gray,” so it’s not surprising to be called the ashplant. Perhaps it’s because many varieties of the flowering Senecio articulatus plant (candle plant) have gray lines of color underneath the silvery grey foliage. Cineraria Hansa The flowering plant went through many changes over the decades. The gray lines are not a characteristic “enjoyed” by many customers. Hybridizers have slowly worked to remove the “ash” for the plant! Cineraria flowers have grown bigger and plant leaves smaller. This has certainly made customers happy. Today it is possible to buy cineraria with very compact flower clusters. Cineraria plants normally grow flowers up to five feet tall during early spring to summer. Taking care of the plant from seed to full-grown plant is not an easy job. Especially in living room conditions. These plant species do not require grooming or cutting of stems. However, it is advisable to remove withered blooms and leaves when they appear.

Sunlight – They do best in a shady location.

Watering – Cineraria have a need for constant moisture.

Plant Care – Their preferred temperature is between 50 and 65 degrees. If temps dip below 35 at night, they’ll die, and if they go above 80 degrees, they’ll stop blooming. In the heat of summer, make sure they stay in shade and it may be necessary to bring them indoors during very hot days.
