The string of Dolphins (Senecio peregrinus) is a species of trailing succulents in the Asteraceae family. It’s a charming hybrid of ‘String of pearls (Senecio rowleyanus) and ‘Candle plant’ (Senecio articulates).
Thanks to its lovely appearance, String of Dolphins quickly became a very trendy houseplant over the past few years. This succulent blooms in late spring with cinnamon-scented little white-pinkish flowers hanging in clusters.
The string of Dolphins is an incredible succulent with unique-looking curvy blue-green leaves shaped like jumping dolphins.
Instructions for planting and care
Seeds are sprinkled with a thin layer of sand (2-3 mm), small ones are left on the surface. Then the landing is covered with a transparent lid and put under the lamp. Bright light and a temperature of about +25 °C are needed for germination. Shoots will sprout in a couple of weeks. They can be transplanted when the first leaves appear or when succulents growing nearby begin to interfere with each other.
