Here is one I'm trying to find. The local nursery has a large one but it's $55. To expensive for me.
String of dolphin:
String of Dolphins (Dendrophorbium peregrinum)
I've seen it called string of fish hooks also.

Ron, it's lucky that you said that and that I completely forgot about sending your box. I can stick a couple of snippings of that in your box ...when I remember to send it tomorrow. Sorry for the delay, I got completely consumed by my new hummingbird feeder over the weekend and the fact that a hummingbird discovered it so quickly. But it seems to have been serendipitous for you.

...as long as you don't mind that it was purchased as this:
String of Dolphins (Curio x peregrinus)

which can't possibly be a different plant from this:
String of Dolphins (Dendrophorbium peregrinum)

The dolphins on my string of dolphins seem to be shrinking.

Pickles is making a few blooms. Wish they were pink or purple. Yellow may not have the same raw beauty, for my very humble opinion, but it's such a cheerful, optimistic color. I'll take it!

For me, gardening is really just an excuse for playing in the dirt. Admittedly, plants are a satisfying by-product.

It was fun and creative. He laboriously painted each one of those styrofoam balls, then threaded & hot-glued them onto string...impressive! I was pleased that it took only a few seconds before I figured it out!

He deserves the acorn, not me. Thanks from both of us Thumbs up
