Hi Everyone 
Does anyone know where you can buy Senecio Angel wing seeds?

    It does not set seed.
    How can you lie there and think of England
    When you don't even know who's in the team

    Hello Noel, welcome to the forum  :)
    As punkdoc says, as far as l am aware it cannot be grown from seed.
    You may find seeds offered on places like Amazon,  but they are usually from foreign sellers,  and even if they had good reviews l wouldn't buy them as you never know what you are getting, it's just too risky.

    The plant is sterile so it does not produce any seeds - even in China, so there is no such thing as Senico Angel Wings seed.
    If you have one, they can be propagated by division.
    Nurseries propagate them by tissue culture so they can produce thousands.

    I'm beginning to be overrun with Angel's Wings! They grow so easily. A fresh leaf will grow roots if you put it in water and once potted on will make a little plant given time. They are quite large after a year. Cutting off a side shoot and potting it works. I had a leggy plant so I cut the top off, potted it up and it is now huge. The base of it had lots of side shoots which grew to cover the stump. They are magnificent plants and are much admired by all who see them.

    As to the insects @irene.poole, I'd  rub them off to get rid of them. I've never put chemicals on the leaves as they are furry. A photograph might help us to be more specific. 
  • I have the same problem with black insects all ove the stems - it was horrid, looked like coffee grounds had been thrown over it - I panicked and sprayed it with all purpose bug remover which cleared them but a few have come back. Also does anyone know what causes rust and how to avoid it please? I have trimmed all the affected leaves off, it looks really sad now
