Light: Provide bright, indirect sunlight for your String of Dolphins. It enjoys plenty of light but should be shielded from direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves. A south or west-facing window with filtered sunlight is ideal.
Temperature: Maintain a warm environment with temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C). String of Dolphins is not frost-tolerant and should be protected from temperatures below 50°F (10°C).
Watering: Allow the top inch (2.5 cm) of the soil to dry out between waterings. Water sparingly, approximately once every 2-3 weeks, depending on the season and humidity levels. Ensure the pot has good drainage to prevent root rot.
Soil: Use a well-draining succulent or cactus potting mix. A mix with good aeration and drainage is crucial for the health of your String of Dolphins.
Pot: Choose a pot with drainage holes to prevent waterlogged soil and root rot. A hanging basket or a pot with a trellis can be a great choice to show off its trailing stems.
Fertilization: Feed your String of Dolphins with a diluted, balanced, liquid succulent fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing during the dormant season (fall and winter).
Pruning: Prune your plant as needed to maintain its shape and encourage bushier growth. You can trim or pinch back leggy stems to promote a more compact appearance.
Propagation: String of Dolphins can be propagated from stem cuttings. Simply snip a healthy stem, allow it to callus for a day or two, and then plant it in well-draining soil.
Pests: Keep an eye out for common succulent pests like mealybugs and aphids. If you notice any infestations, treat them promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
