The Senecio peregrinus goes by common names ‘The Dolphin Necklace’ and ‘String of Dolphins’.

The cute winter-dormant succulent can grow up to the height of 36 inches (91 cm) and belongs to the Asteraceae family.

Growth Rate

Senecio peregrinus is the type of succulent that will instantly make you fall in love! Furthermore, this succulent is relatively simple to grow and has a slow growth rate.

Flowering

When a String of dolphins matures, it bears adorable white flowers that bloom along with this succulent from Spring to early summer. 

Watering and Feeding

Unlike some rare succulents that can be difficult to water, the Senecio peregrinus is relatively simple to care for. This plant does not require much fertilizer, as over-fertilization may result in the loss of its iconic jumping dolphin appearance.

Soil

The dolphin necklace, like most succulents, can rot if overwatered. As a result, choose a well-draining soil, such as a cactus/succulent mix, and plant them in a container with drainage holes in the bottom.

Hardiness

Strings of dolphins are often grown in a hardiness zone of 10 and have a frost tolerance of 30° F (-1.1° C). So, they are not cold-hardy either.

Light

When exposed to too much sun, this variety, like the String of Pearls, can easily become sunburned. This houseplant requires Full sun to partial shade sun exposure.

Propagation

You can easily propagate these plants from stem cuttings.

As the leaves of Senecio peregrinus or String of Dolphins resemble a pod of jumping dolphins, this adorable succulent will give you beach vibes all day long! So, for your plants to thrive and bring that little ocean spirit into your home, make sure they are properly cared for.
