Peperomia prostrata - String of Turtles

$ 12.00

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.

Adorable String of Turtles

My new favorite plant! I’ve named her Ernie. Her teensy leaves are so lush and green and almost look 3d, like you can get lost looking at them! Wrapped with great care and a very healthy and stable plant. I will be ordering more. ❤️
