Peperomia prostrata - String of Turtles

$ 12.00
Size

Peperomia prostrata is a miniature species whose tiny, bead-like leaves are fleshy and succulent to the touch, emerging along creeping, pinkish vines. Easily one of our favorites in the genus, this plant is often called Sting of Turtles due to the beautiful, shell-like patterning on its leaves. Native to the rainforests of Brazil, we’ve found that this plant roots readily and is easy to propagate, though it is exceedingly difficult to find – a Peperomia for the collector!

Plant Care

Light: Select a location with medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 2" of soil feels dry
• Considerations: Succulent leaves make String of Turtles especially sensitive to soggy soil. Use a loose, well-draining mix. Pet friendly!

What to Expect

You'll get a healthy Peperomia prostrata that meets our rigorous quality standards in your choice of a 2" or 4" nursery pot – Hand Thrown Ceramic Planter sold separately. No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos.

Our plants include detailed care instructions as well as our Houseplant Best Practices guide, with information on how to repot, seasonal care and more!

We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!

Gorgeous plant

I have bought several plants from Pistils and will happily continue to do so! They package their plants with such care, and this beautiful peperomia is happy and thriving in her new home!
