About String of Dolphins

String of Dolphins, also called dolphin plants, or flying Dolphins, is a rare trailing succulent that’s making waves around the world with its string-like stems that look like tiny little dolphins jumping out of the waves. It’s a hybrid between a string of pearls and a candle plant. They bloom in the fall with small white, tightly compacted flowers.

How to care for String of Dolphins

Sun/Location: String of Dolphins is drought tolerant, but it prefers slightly more water and shade than other succulents. They are most commonly grown indoors as excellent addition in hanging baskets and vertical gardens. It can be placed outdoors in spring and fall to get full sunlight. Shade is required in summer to avoid sunburn. In winter, protection from frost is needed.

Soil/Pot: To ensure the health of succulents, they need porous, well-draining soil to live in. To create an adequate cactus mix, add pumice, perlite, or grit to cactus soil to provide the proper drainage. 

Watering: Succulents require little watering but don't like to sit in wet soil. Water thoroughly when the soil is dry. Cut back on watering during the fall and winter when String of Dolphins enters dormancy.

We pack all shipments by hand. 

We have many years of experience shipping live succulents and cactus plants. We pay close attention to packing and have developed an expert shipping method. All succulents are packed and protected with polypropylene cotton (this is a stuffing used for dolls). We find this is the most effective material for protecting live plants while in transit. It is important to us that you are able to Keep going and Keep growing without any stress about the quality of the product or packaging.

Shipping Speed

In general, it takes 3 to 10 days for plants to arrive after you place your order. All orders will be shipped out 48 hours after you place them. We ship the orders on work days(from Monday to Saturday) and all year round. In normal conditions, it will take 3-10 days for you to receive the package. Estimated shipping times are offered as needed.

HOLIDAYS: During weeks in which a holiday occurs - Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, etc. - shipping may be delayed until the following week.

EXTREME WEATHER NOTICE: The Next Gardener reserves the right to hold shipments during storms or periods of extreme heat or cold. This is to ensure your plant does not suffer while it is in transit.

Winter shipping

We insist on shipping succulents to our customers all year round. However due to the extreme winter weather, although we pack succulents with as much protective material as possible, plants are still at increased risk of frost on their way to colder areas. We highly recommend adding one 72-hour heat pack to your order or you can request a hold on the package until it warms up.

Please note that The Next Gardener is not responsible for packages that suffer cold damage without a heat pack. We cannot control the weather. Order at your own risk.

Hawaii, Alaska, and Other US Territories

Fortunately, shipping is available to Alaska, Guam, and other U.S. Territories. However, due to numerous factors beyond our control, including customs checks and shipping delays, free shipping to Hawaii and Puerto Rico is not an option. And we can not provide the 14-day quality guarantee for orders going to Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The buyer will assume all risk of damage when a delivery is delayed. We appreciate your understanding.

Sorry. No International Shipping for now!!!

Lili Sachar
Adorable healthy plants

I bought 2 of these and they came pretty quickly and both were healthy and well wrapped. I used some in an arrangement and I am still deciding on what to do with the rest. They are happily waiting for me to decide because they get more beautiful everyday.


My succulent arrived in perfect condition, very well packed and fast.
