  • String of Turtles, also known as Peperomia Prostrata is a small, vining plant with roundish, succulent green leaves with brownish blotches resembling the turtle shell.
  • Its small size and delicate leaves make it a great plant for container gardens and terrariums.
  • It will form a thick mat and does well in hanging baskets where it will cascade over the sides of the pot.
  • The narrow flower spike is reddish-brown.
  • Bright light can help it grow well.
  • If the leaves are dark green, do not expose plants to too much direct sunlight as it can harm them.
  • These plants grow well as indoor plants under fluorescent lights.
  • It prefers moist soil but does not like overwatering.
  • Allow the top layer of the soil to completely dry before watering again.
  • It requires a loose, rich, well-aerated, and well-drained potting mix.
  • A good way to mix up the soil is to use 2 parts peat and one part sand or perlite and to change it or the top layer once a year.
