These Animal Shaped Succulents Are The Latest Craze in Japan

Forget your tiny cacti and aloe vera—dolphin succulents are the latest craze, and theyre here to stay.

These dolphin-shaped succulents, also known as Senecio perigrinus, are the latest fashion in the flora world. Aptly named dolphin succulents, these plants are what their name suggests: portable plants whose leaves look like leaping dolphins.

These green dolphins first went viral in Japan and soon swam across the Atlantic to capture the hearts of people everywhere.
