Senecio String of Dolphins is a novel foliage plant with plenty of character. The trailing stems look sensational in hanging baskets or containers with the dolphins diving here there and everywhere! They are sure to make you smile.
The occasional flowers are white and smell faintly of cinnamon.
Plant Senecio in a bright light to part sun position – shelter from the hot afternoon sun. Water and keep moist spring and summer, and relatively dry in winter, allowing the mix to dry out between waterings. Suitable for growing indoors. Use a good quality succulent/cactus potting mix. In ideal conditions they can grow up to half a metre in a year. Choose a pot around the same size or slightly larger than the plant as they like to be crowded, and only pot on if they become overcrowded.
This plant is also known as Dolphin Necklace or Flying Dolphins.
