Why these dolphin succulents are becoming the latest trend in house plants

I’ve noticed that more and more people are growing succulents in their home. We all know the health benefits of having plants in our home but if you’re anything like me you may struggle to keep a plant alive.

Not knowing anything about succulents I’ve been weary to have a go at keeping one, but I’ve since found out that they are pretty low maintenance.

The latest trend in succulents is a plant that’s more reminiscent of the sea rather than the earth, and they may just be the cutest plant you’ve ever seen.

Succulents have been the best kept secret among green thumbs for a while but now we’re all catching on to this easy, eye catching greenery.

Recently, it’s Senecio Peregrinus, a succulent with tiny leaves that look like dolphins jumping in the air, that has captured everyone’s attention, and not just those with avid gardening skills.

Also known as Dolphin Succulent, this beautiful plant could become quite a talking piece when friends come over.

These plants grow up to 15 cm tall and if you’re really lucky will produce “small, starry pink flowers” over time.

All they require is a bright spot and a pot that drains easily so they don’t sit in a lot of excess moisture.

In the winter months they tend to go dormant so only need to be watered once a month.

All you need to grow a dolphin succulent is one single leaf. Place it in damp soil and it will quickly develop roots  — it’s that easy.
