ONE PER CUSTOMER.
The Peperomia prostrata is native to Central and South America. Commonly called String of Turtles. The String of Turtles has tiny green circular domed leaves that resemble a turtle shell, (hence the common name) that grow along the long stems.
140mm Pot Size
The String of Turtles grows well in the bright indirect light. Position your plant in an east or west facing window with room for the plant to cascade down. They will even grow under fluorescent lights which also makes them great for offices or apartments too. Insufficient light will cause the growth to slow and direct sunlight will burn the leaves.
They don't' need a lot of water, allow the top 50% of soil to dry before you water, as they can store water in the thick leaves. Please bottom water this plant as watering from the top may cause the leaves to dry and die.
You'll get a healthy String of Turtles that meets our rigorous quality standards. Please note that no two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from our photos.
Our plants include a care plant card with information on how to water, care and more!
