Care and Propagation Information
General Care for Senecio peregrinus “String of Dolphins”
As Senecio peregrinus “String of Dolphins” grows, it spreads out across the ground, or grows down out of a hanging basket. It grows well indoors when it receives enough light. Each dolphin-shaped leaf is a “window” where it absorbs light.
Senecio peregrinus “String of Dolphins” has typical watering needs for a succulent. It's best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.
Where to Plant
“String of Dolphins” is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 30° F (-1.1° C), it's best to plant this succulent in a container that can be brought indoors. It does well in bright indoor light, but also grows well under grow lights
How to Propagate Senecio peregrinus “String of Dolphins”
Senecio peregrinus “String of Dolphins” can be propagated from stem cuttings.
To grow “String of Dolphins” from cuttings, use a sterile, sharp knife or pair of scissors. Remove a stem from the main plant, and allow it to callous for several days before placing on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil has dried out completely.
“String of Dolphins” is a hybrid of Senecio rowleyanus “String of Pearls” and Senecio articulatus “Candle Plant”
