Senecio peregrinus, also known as string of dolphins is a hybrid succulent with a very special leaf shape. It is an evergreen succulent trailing vine that grows to 10 centimetres in height and spreads to reach up to 2–4 metres in length. The leaves of the Senecio peregrinus resemble dolphins with a dorsal fin, the most attractive aspect of this plant. Senecio likes to be pot bound- we recommend growing it in the same pot for at least couple of years, truly a low maintenance plant.

Senecio is a perfect plant for busy people as it is really easy to take care for and will survive if you forget to water her! The plant prefers a drier, brighter space, perfect for growing next to a window.

Senecio peregrinus prefer a bright space without direct sunlight. A south facing window may be too bright for this plant however morning sun will not be a problem. Allow soil to dry out fully between watering, this is approximately once per week in the growing season and once  per month in the period of dormancy.

SIZE TBC. It comes in a plastic nursery pot.

Care Tips:

Light: bright spot, can whit-stand a few hours of sunshine a day

Water: as opposed to most succulents, needs regular (possibly weekly) watering in summer and much less in winter but only when potting mix is dry to touch

Soil: fast draining potting mix such as cactus mix

Humidity: average

If you tend to forget to water your plants, you should consider getting some more species from our succulent category.
