String of dolphins
Senecio peregrinus is commonly known as string of dolphines, due to the fact that its leaves resemble the shape of a dolphin jumping out of water. The succulent leaves of this dainty house plant hang off long, thread-like stems. In the summer, this hanging plant produces white, fluffy flowers with a delicious cinammon smell.
Size: 12 cm pot
Light: Very bright indirect light
Watering: Allow half of the compost to dry out between waterings when the plant is actively growing, usually from spring through autumn. Allow the compost to dry out completely in winter if light levels are lower.
Feeding: Use half the recommended dose of a balanced liquid fertilizer every 6 weeks from spring through summer, or whenever you can see active growth.
Soil: Cactus compost or well draining soil mix.
Troubleshooting: Leaves may dry out and shrivel if the soil is too compacted. To avoid losing leaves at the top of the plant, make sure the whole plant gets light and not just the strings.
Tip: This plant can be toxic if ingested, so we advise to keep it away from pets and children. Keep it away from direct sunlight and drafts. You can display it in a hanging pot and allow the stems to cascade down.
