Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot.

When I first received this plant the string of dolphins had “fins”. In the time I have had the plant it has really grown and produced many more strings. However, there are no “fins” anywhere on the dolphins! Could it have reverted to something else?
