Love dolphins so much you wish you could keep a pod of them in your home? Well, you can't really do that. Sorry. But you can get yourself a more manageable substitute: Meet dolphin succulents, a low-maintenance plant with leaves that look like tiny, breaching cetaceans.
According to Japanese pop culture blog Rocket News, these unique houseplants have stolen the hearts of Japanese people on Twitter and Instagram, like kao77neko whose comment basically translates to "hella dolphins!!!"
Couldn't have said it better ourselves, kao77neko.
These charming plants go by the scientific name Senecio peregrinus, but in Japan they're also nicknamed "dolphin necklaces."
According to gardening Instagram account itsasucculentworld, dolphin succulents are the hybrid babies of the hot dog cactus (Senecio articulatus) ...

Only in the succulent world would a hot dog and a pearl make a dolphin.
