Senecio Peregrinus – String of dolphins

(1 customer review)


String of Dolphins is a seriously ‘on trend’ plant at the minute and is still very hard to get hold of.

A rare succulnet with trailing vines and tiny dolphin-shaped fronds, it just looks like the dolphins are leaping through the water.

Pick a warm spot and be careful about watering and this succulent will reward you with steady growth.

12cm diameter plastic pot


String of dolphins likes a consistantly warm, but out of full sunlight spot to be happiest and encourage growth


it is pretty easy to water String of Dolphin, and we have found that the best way to do this is by  giving them a good soak of water until it runs out the pot’s drainage hole, and allowing the soil to dry completely in between waterings. Do this once per week during their growing period and once per month during their dormant period every winter.

Compared to other Senecio like String of pearls, String of Dolphins prefers a bit more watering, which mostly makes them suffer from being under-watered.

So keep in mind to always check their leaves for a sign to help you determine if they lack watering or not.

When you see signs like dull, deflated and dry leaves, that implies that your Dolphin is underwater. On the other hand, if you see squishy, yellow or transparent leaves, it means your Dolphin is getting more water than needed.


They can be a bit fussy, sensitive to overwatering and needing consistent warmth and bright indirect light to stay happy. But pick the right spot and monitor this beautiful succulent closely and you’ll be rewarded with steady growth.
