The common name of Senecio peregrinus is dolphin plant and is a very description of this adorable succulent. These succulents develop leaves that quite literally look like tiny jumping dolphins.
Senecio peregrinus is a cross between hot dog cactus and string of pearls. Their unusual leaf form has typical succulent plumpness with low maintenance and few growing issues. The main thing to remember is that the plant is a succulent and requires well-draining soil to thrive. Succulent plants are often hybridized to create new and amazing forms. Dolphin plants are a cross and have some of the traits of both parents. They are not commonly sold, but many collectors have specimens available. The little dolphin leaves branch off of green stems that may reach several inches high (up to 15 cm).
