It is commonly as String of Dolphins or Dolphin Necklace because the leaves look like dolphins that trail down thin stems.
Succulents are plants that have parts that are more than normally thickened and fleshy, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. They may store water in their leaves and stems and are often grown as ornamental plants because of their striking and unusual appearance. They can thrive on a sunny window sill or under bright artificial light, so grow them in the brightest spot you have at home or at work.
Sunlight: Partial sunlight to direct sunlight (depends on variety)
Water: Water only when the potting media is almost dried out. Make sure the potting media is not water-logged. Do not water daily, and do not wet the ‘leaves’ (do not spray).
Fertiliser: Keep the plant in good health by applying slow release fertilizer or diluted liquid fertilizer about once a month.
Plant size: approx. 20cm (vary in sizes)
Rootball size: 15cmØ x 12cmH

Soil for Succulent Plants
Succulent plants should be grown in cactus & succulent soil mix. Make or buy a cactus & succulent pre-mix that include sand, perlite, expanded clay and other ingredients. A suitable soil for succulent plants needs to provide good drainage (not be water logged), hold moisture, and give roots room to grow.
All plants depend on light for their survival, thus making sure your succulent plants get the right amount of light is key to keeping them happy. In a container pot, group your succulent plants with other plants of similar light requirements. Don't mix shade lovers with sun lovers in a single pot; one or both of them will be unhappy, depending on where you place the pot.
