Peperomia prostrata - String of Turtles


Peperomia prostrata 'String of Turtles' has striking foliage with beautiful markings that resemble that of a turtle shell. These plants are incredibly popular and are a must have for any avid plant collector.

Pot diameter: 12cm Growers Pot.

Please note that while we pack these incredibly carefully they are delicate and will lose some leaves in transit. These plants are shipped at the buyers risk.

Strictly one plant per person 

The plant is sold in a plastic grow pot. 


Light levels: String of turtles love lots of bright indirect light - keep away from direct sunlight as this will scorch the leaves.

Watering: This plant likes to be kept in lightly moist soil throughout the growing season but does require the soil to dry down more in the winter months. This plant can tolerate being on the drier side more so than the wet side so be mindful to not over-water. It is a good idea to increase the humidity surrounding the plant during the winter months.

Feeding: During the Spring/Summer growing season, use a slow-release liquid fertiliser once per month.

Growth: This beautiful plant grows at a moderate speed and in a compact form, it generally reaches maturity after 3-5 years.

Toxicity: This plant has a low level of toxicity if ingested so it's best to be kept out of reach of pets and children.

Air purifying: A great plant to have in the home to help eliminate any airborne toxins in the air
