Dolphin Plant, or String of Dolphins (Senecio peregrinus), is a rare variety of trailing succulent that looks like a pod of leaping dolphins. This uncommon hybrid is a cross of String of Pearls (S. rowleyanus) and Candle Plant (S. articulatus). It can be difficult to find and requires a bit of special care, but it is well worth the effort.
String of Dolphins thrive in well-draining soil. They can rot if over-watered, so be sure to use containers with drainage holes. Select a light, gritty soil like a cactus/succulent mix from a local garden center. You can also prevent rot by keeping the plant in a well-ventilated area.
Succulents are adapted to dry climates and can tolerate periods of drought. String of Dolphins, however, thrives with a bit more frequent watering than most succulents. Be sure to drench it enough for water to run out the pot’s drainage hole (no misting). Allow the soil to dry before watering again.
