These Succulents Look Like Mermaid Tails

Add a touch of whimsy to your succulent collection!

Succulents have been having a moment for a while, and now these pretty plants are syncing up with another popular trend — mermaids — for one magical-looking plant that you’ll want to display in your home ASAP.

Officially known as a crested senecio vitalis and often referred to as Blue Chalk Fingers, this succulent variant can grow to look just like a mermaid tail sprouting out of the pot.

Because it grows outward instead of toward a light source like the majority of plants, it can fan out in such a way that resembles Ariel’s fin peeking out of the ocean when she dives back underwater.
