You can probably recognize a cactus without a second glance. Even snake plants are becoming more and more common. But what about donkey tails? Or trachyandra (say that five times fast). If you already have a home filled with plant babies that all look the same, you might want to make one of these varieties your next addition.

Dolphin Succulents

People are going nuts for this adorable plant in Japan and for good reason: The tiny leaves look exactly like swimming dolphins. We know, it’s almost too good to be true. If you want your own, the technical name for this variety is Senecio peregrinus.

Your fish tank is about to get way more playful. You see, these “moss balls” are made out of algae grown in a spherical shape and live in water. To care for them, replace the water every two weeks and keep the plant in low, indirect sunlight.

 

Love these guys. Perfect for our little #cornerplanter too! #hoyakerrii # #hearts #heart #
