String of Dolphins in a Hanging Basket
String of Dolphins
in a Hanging Basket 6" $45
Dolphin Plant, or String of Dolphins (Senecio peregrinus), is a rare variety of trailing succulent that looks like a pod of leaping dolphins!
The leaves of the Dolphin Plant are fleshy, notched crescents that truly resemble dolphins.
In addition to their eccentric 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.
Like most succulents, Dolphin Plants thrive in well-draining soil.
They can rot if over-watered, so be sure to use containers with drainage holes.
Select a light, gritty soil like a cactus/succulent mix.
You can also prevent rot by keeping the plant in a well-ventilated area.
Succulents are adapted to dry climates and can tolerate periods of drought.
The Dolphin Plant, however, thrives with a bit more frequent watering than most succulents.
Be sure to drench it enough for water to run out the drainage hole (no misting).
Allow the soil to dry before watering again.
