String of Turtles

(5 customer reviews)


‘Peperomia Prostrata’

Look at this babe! These guys are adorable. The little round leaves look like turtle shells. Easy to look after and pet safe! Whoohoo. I’ve been looking for bigger ones for ages, they’re not super easy to find in this size!

Light : These guys like bright light. If the turtle shell is very dark green then don’t expose it too much sun as it might harm it. 

Water: Moist soil will keep these little turtles happy, just be careful not to over-water. Let the top layer of soil go dry before watering. 

Humidity: These like humidity so you can keep him in the bathroom/kitchen, group him with other plants or offer him some mist. 

Temperature: Household temperature is great for these guys.

Food:  You can feed you String of Turtles monthly with diluted fertiliser during spring/summer. 

Toxicity:  Non toxic so feel free to house these guys alongside the smaller creatures in your house.

Dimensions 14 × 8 cm

If they look a bit discoloured or wilted then you might be overwatering them. 

Loss of variegation can be caused by too harsh sun. Be mindful of where this little fella is placed.

    Lovely little plant. I’ve paired mine with the Hangin’ Around Cat Pot and it looks great. Can’t wait to see it grow.
