Senecio ⎮ String of Dolphins
Available In-Store Only
String of dolphins are known for their iconic dolphin-shaped leaves and long hanging vines. They look great in hanging baskets or draping over a plant ledge. Their leaves retain water which makes them drought-tolerant, so just allow the soil to dry thoroughly then water until it flows out the bottom of the pot.
String of dolphins does best when it receives at least six hours of sunlight a day. So place your string of dolphins in a bright, sunny window and ignore it most of the time and this adorable succulent will thrive.

String of dolphins can be easily propagated from stem cuttings in water or soil. Take cuttings that have at least 2-3 nodes along the stem for the best chance of success. The nodes can be found at the points where the leaves emerge from the stems and are where the new roots will grow.
If you are propagating stem cuttings in water, remove the leaves from the bottom node or two to ensure that the leaves don’t rot. Roots should develop within a couple of weeks, at which point you can transfer the cutting to soil.
If you are propagating in soil only, simply lay the stem cutting on top of the soil and ensure that the soil is kept moist until roots develop.
