String of Dolphins Care Guide
Happy in a shady spot, with filtered indirect sunlight, or placed by a south-facing window for a good 5+ hours of bathing in the sun
Likes more water than the usual succulents and can be a bit unhappy if you do not water enough; give them a good soak and allow the soil to dry out between waterings
Average from 18 °C to 24 °C - especially in the growing season; as these babies go into dormancy during the winter, they do require cooler temperatures and therefore much less water- once a month will do
Only require occasional fertilizing; in fact, over-fertilizing them can cause the leaves to lose their iconic dolphin shape; feed once in spring with a balanced fertilizer
Place in a relatively root-bound pot, as String of Dolphins thrives in overcrowded conditions. Choose a well-draining soil and pot in a container with drainage holes
Remove yellow and dying leaves, using a clean and sharp utensil; gently spray with water or mist to clean the leaves
