String of Dolphins has beautiful curvy leaves which perfectly resemble a pod of little jumping Dolphins. It is a cross-pollination of String of Pearls and The Hot Dog cactus and can grow up to 15 cm (6 inches) tall.
Like String of Pearls, the String of Dolphins may easily get sunburned when exposed to too much sun. They are not heat-loving succulent so don't give them direct sunlight when it is getting too hot. If you want to place them together with your other plant collections outside, place them in a shaded spot where they will get indirect or filtered sunlight all day.
Like most succulents, the String of Dolphins can rot if overwatered. Therefore, choosing a well-draining soil like a cactus/succulent mix and plant them in a container that has drainage holes in the bottom.
On top of that, Dolphins thrive in crowded conditions, so make sure to use a container only a bit larger than them.
Give them a good soak of water until it runs out the pot’s drainage hole, and allowing the soil to dry completely in between watering. Do this once per week during their growing seasons (which usually happens in spring to early autumn) and once per month during their dormant period every winter. You can adjust watering schedule to meet each individual plant’s needs based on your specific area conditions.
