It’s easy to see how this hard to find succulent plant earned its name, through an abundance of curved leaves which resemble a pod of jumping dolphins.
Like other succulents, you are most at risk of damaging this plant by overwatering it. Resist the urge to over-care for your String of Dolphins and allow it to dry out between moderate waterings.
This beautiful hanging plant deserves space to trail, over a windowsill or book case is perfect as long as it is getting enough sun. These plants crave indirect light, their ideal conditions would be a south facing window where they can catch the sun in the mornings. Avoid direct sunlight as they can experience sunburn.
It is worth mentioning that the beautiful leaves on the String of Dolphins are quite delicate and they may lose a few strands during transit, don’t worry though! This gives you the opportunity to propagate them and grow even more plants.
Light: Prefers indirect light in the mornings but can tolerate a range of lighting. Can experience sunburn in direct sun.
Water: For best results watch the plant as it will tell you when it needs watering, when thirsty the 'dolphin' leaves will shrivel and lose their shape. Let the plant completely dry in between waterings as they are sensitive to overwatering.
Feed: Only feed once or twice a year to maintain the jumping dolphin appearance.
Humidity: Will thrive at a normal home humidity but would appreciate lower humidity during winter months.
