String of Dolphins (Senecio Peregrinus)

About Me!

Native to Southwest Africa! My strings are adorned in small hook shaped leaves resembling swimming dolphins, hence the name. Do not let my looks fool you, my leaves retain a lot of water, so frequent watering is not necessary! I do well in partial to full sun, requiring a minimum of 6 hours per day. Be careful with my placement during the colder months.
