String Of Dolphins

$30.00

A hybrid of the String of Pearls and Candle Plant, the String of Dolphins (Senecio peregrinus) is a trailing succulent in the Asteraceae family.

String of dolphins are characterized by their iconic dolphin-shaped leaves and long hanging tendrils. While they can bloom, the delicate blooms are relatively inconspicuous and these plants are grown for their interesting foliage rather than their flowers.

Bright indirect light.

Water about once a week, when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry.

No - Can cause mouth irritation and digestive reaction.

The leaves of a string of dolphins can retain water for a long period of time, and as such, they are considered drought-tolerant and do not require regular watering. Allow the soil to dry thoroughly between waterings to avoid root rot, and then water well. Cut back on watering during the fall and winter months when the succulent goes into dormancy.
