A succulent plant shaped like a dolphin exists and it’s the cutest houseplant ever

If you’re a plant lover, but don’t have the best record of keeping them alive than succulents might be the best choice for you. They are capable of surviving with little water and come in several varieties.

Some look like a tiny cactus, others look like mini trees, and then there’s the dolphin succulent that looks like, well, you guessed it jumping dolphins!

According to @itsasucculentworld on Instagram, the animal-like plant is actually a cross pollination between the Senecio articulatus (hot dog cactus) and Senecio rowleyanus (string of pearls).

They are known as Senecio peregrinus or dolphin necklace.

The result is an adorable display of leaves that look like dolphins jumping out of the water. And according to Martha Stewart, the leaves maintain their shape no matter how big the plant grows!

Since the dolphin succulent is a hybrid, it may be difficult to find a fully grown plant, though finding seeds for the plant is typically easier.
