Peperomia prostrata - String of Turtles

$ 18.00
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!

Deal of the Year

This plant is so hard to find at a decent price. Basically, u have cuttings or outrageously priced plants to choose from. So, this is the deal of the year, if u ask me. A healthy, true 4" specimen. Just buy it or 2!
