String of Dolphins | Senecio peregrinus

I am a beautiful succulent with leaves that resemble dolphins jumping out of the water, hence my common name. I am also sometimes called Dolphin Necklace, Dolphin Plant or Flying Dolphins.

Useful to know:

Origin

I am a hybrid of the Senecio articulatus and the Senecio rowleyanus both native to southern Africa.

Height/Growth

My vines can grow up to 1m in length.

Light

Bright direct or indirect light - I love a bit of sunshine but not too much please!

Water

I am a succulent so let my soil dry fully between waterings. I will need more frequent watering during spring and summer and only monthly during winter.

Temperature

Room temperatures of 16-24°C are perfect.

Feeding

General fertiliser once to twice a year will be enough for me.

Grooming

I am fuss-free but if you snap off a vine by accident, just pop it in soil and I'll throw out some more roots!

Care

I am susceptible to root rot if overwatered so make sure my pot can drain and I'm not left sitting in water.

Toxicity

I am toxic so please don't eat me. Read here about another toxic plant from similar origin - Mandarin Plant.

Fact

I might flower in late spring - look out for tiny white puffballs with orange/red halo filaments!
