String of dolphins is a creeping succulent with arched leaf grows two small points which make this plant look uncannily like a pod of frolicking dolphins. This beautiful trailing succulent is easily propagated. It’s perfect for hanging baskets and can be grown indoors if given proper sunlight. Be careful not to over-water. Can grow up to 90 cm long. Great plant for both indoor and outdoor (frost free area) and suits a hanging basket.
"Water plants regularly to keep the soil evenly moist to avoid a feast or famine approach. The frequency you need to water the plant will depend upon the room temperature. In summer it could be as often as once a week in summer and fortnightly in winter.
Indoor Plants need light to create their energy and survive, so if a plant isn’t getting enough light it’ll exhibit some tell-tale signs: look out for pale growth and weak flowering. If your plant shows these signs move it to somewhere that has more light.
Most indoor house plants originate from sub-tropical rainforests where humidity can be as high as 100 per cent. To provide similar conditions, spray the foliage of plants with warm water regularly.
Fertilisers help to keep the plant healthy by ensuring it gets the nutrients it needs. Newly purchased or recently re-potted plants should not be fed with fertiliser until they are a couple of months old as it can burn the roots because they are not well established."
