Catch the Wave on this New and Unique Succulent, String of Dolphins

There’s a new succulent on the scene – String of Dolphins. This playful, succulent variety, otherwise known as Flying Dolphins, the Dolphin Necklace, or by its scientific name Senecio Peregrinus, is all the rage in the succulent world, and it’s easy to see why. The delightfully curved leaves that protrude from the stemmed vine look like jumping dolphins.

The Dolphin succulent can grow up to 6-inches tall and maintains its shape as it grows. This plant requires plenty of light but prefers indirect light. Perch them on a windowsill or table that gets plenty of sunlight. Like most succulents, this one will tolerate periods of dryness but will need to be kept moist enough to prevent the Dolphin leaves from puckering. Choose a well-draining potting soil, and use a container that is just a bit larger than the plant, since Dolphin plants thrive in slightly crowded conditions.

Succulents have never been more on trend than they are right now, and low maintenance succulents make for the perfect houseplant for those of any age to learn how to nurture their green thumb. Click on the link below to learn more about succulents.
