String of Dolphins (Senecio peregrinus) is a succulent plant that is a cross between String of Pearls (Senecio Rowleyanus) and Candle Plant (Senecio Articulatus). Its leaves are known for their dolphin-like shape and their long tendrils.

They are excellent houseplants that look great in hanging baskets. In the wild, these Senecio varieties creep along as a ground cover. They also shine in a hanging pot where they can create a dense cascade of greenery.

The leaves of the String of Dolphin are fleshy, notched crescents that truly resemble dolphins. In addition to their unbelievable shape, each leaf has a translucent "leaf window". This adaptation allows sunlight to irradiate the leaf interior and helps the plant tolerate low light conditions. They grow trailing stems that can reach 1.0' to 3.0' long.

 

Care Tips

Light: Need sunlights, but thanks to their leaf windows they can tolerate slightly less light than some non-green succulent varieties. To strike the right balance, try placing it outdoors in the shade or indoors near a sunny window. 

Water: String of Dolphins thrives with a bit more frequent watering than most succulents. Be sure to drench it enough for water to run out the pot’s drainage hole (no misting). Allow the soil to dry before watering again.

Soil: A well-draining potting mix for cactus and succulents. 

Potting: A well-draining holes. Like terracotta pots because the clay helps wick moisture away from the roots. Use a smallish pot – a pot that is too large will not dry down quickly enough and the roots could rot.

Temperature: It thrives between 50°F and 80°F. Bring this dolphin indoors when the weather is anything but mild. They tolerate winter temperatures as low as 40 °F (4 °C). If you live in an area with cold winters, you don’t have to be as careful placing your plant near cold or drafty windows.

Humidity: String of Dolphins grows well in average household humidity levels when grown indoors. Does not like too much humidity. Normal household humidity is good for this plant.

    Care Instructions

    Please visit our Succulent Care info page for more details.

    To ensure the health of succulents, it is important to plant them in porous, well-draining soil. Succulents require little watering, but don't like to sit in wet soil. To create an adequate cactus mix, simply add pumice, perlite, or grit to cactus soil to provide the proper drainage.

    Make sure to leave drought periods between waterings to prevent the plant from water-logging.
