String Of Dolphins
Although it can easily get sunburned in direct sun when grown outdoors, when grown as a houseplant, string of dolphins does best when it receives at least six hours of sunlight a day.
A south-facing window is ideal, but it can adapt to medium light when grown indoors as well. If needed, use grow lights to provide additional light.
String of dolphins leaves can retain water for a long period of time, and as such, they are considered drought-tolerant and do not require regular watering.
Allow the soil to dry thoroughly between waterings to avoid root rot, and then water well. Cut back on watering during the fall and winter months when the plant goes into dormancy.
Temperature and Humidity
String of dolphins grows well in average household temperatures and humidity levels when grown indoors. Interestingly, while these plants are not frost-tolerant, they tend to prefer cooler temperatures than the average succulent. They tolerate winter temperatures as low as 40 degrees Fahrenheit (4 degrees Celsius).
If you live in an area with cold winters, you don’t have to be as careful placing your plant near cold or drafty windows as you would with a string of pearls plant.
