Peperomia prostrata - String of Turtles

$ 18.00

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‚Äôve found that this plant roots readily and is easy to propagate, though it is exceedingly difficult to find ‚Äď a Peperomia for the collector!

Plant Care

‚ÄĘ Light: Select a location with medium to bright, indirect light
‚Äʬ†Water: Water when the top 2" of soil feels dry
‚Äʬ†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 ‚ÄstHand 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.

Small but not for long!

I got the 2" and it was definitely a little small when it first got here... but boy is it already growing! One of my new favorite (and fastest growing) plants, I'm thrilled every time I see a new little "turtle" pop up.
