Cleaning white spots off of leaves, Rubber Ivy
I recently have been looking everywhere and finally found a Senecio macroglossus (rubber ivy) at a local nursery. I was sooo excited, but I'm sure most of you know that feeling of when you find that plant that you've been wanting and have been looking everywhere for...so yay for me, one plant off my list of 'must haves' for houseplants. And it's a really nice size one too, it's a really big hanging pot.
Anyways, like all plants that I buy, it's in a secluded spot til I know for sure that it isnt carrying anything bad that can pass onto my other plants...BUT, it has ALOT of those white spots on the leaves that I guess plants get from watering, (either pesticides or minerals?) and it has just too many leaves to clean, but I will take the time if I must to clean it, but what's the best way to clean them??
Also, I keep getting mixed answers on watering, some say to keep plant moist at all times, and others say to keep it on the dry side...I know it's a succulent, so I'm confused on the best way to water this plant since I know your not suppose to keep succulent plants moist at all times...but maybe this plant is not a true succulent??
Any help would be great, thank you.
