@Stall54Jo Hi! If it’s anything like String of Pearls, then I don’t think they come back. When my pearls fall off, I’ve never seen them come back. Could be different with the Dolphins though. I’ve had success with my pearls by taking cuttings and laying them on top of soil. Each pearl grows from a node and as such can take root. I tried water prop with my string of pearls and had no success with that.
Hey @SunnyPlants I had the same issue with my pearls and my turtles. They grow like crazy all season. One day, they were fine and 2 days later dying off. I don't know what I am doing wrong with these guys. Thank for your input. I am thinking proping will be the best way to go if I am to save Flipper.
@Stall54Jo I initially had a difficult time with my pearls. There were just a few scraggly strands. Then somewhere I read to take the strands and put them on top of the soil and then they really took off! I only bottom water her as I noticed other friend’s top watered and their pearls turned to mush. 😱
I haven’t tried any other String of’s plants yet, but of course I want them all. πŸ˜‚ I hope your flipper prop goes well and soon have lots of 🐬🐬🐬🐬
