Ceropegia “String of Turtles” Tropicals | 4″ Pot

(4 customer reviews)


The String of Turtles (Peperomia prostrata) is a tiny Brazilian native succulent that thrives in a climate typically found in the home. This is why it is featured in houseplant collections. It is small in size and has a slow growth rate, reaching full maturity in three to five years. This makes string of turtles a good choice if you have limited space. That same leaf shape is what gives the plant its common name. Each leaf looks like the shell of a miniature turtle strung together. Every tiny leaf on its trailing vine has intricate multi-colored patterns covering its surface. The colors become muted with age and eventually become bicolored by maturity, usually a darker green contrasted by light green.

No direct sunlight for this little guy. This plant can handle lower lighting, but not no light. Do not let the soil dry out, damp is best.
