String of turtles

These beautiful delicate plants are also known as peperomia prostrata but you can see why they're called string of turtles as their lovely little leaves look just like baby turtle shells.


They like being in fairly bright light though avoid direct sunlight. They put on an impressive show of growth in the summer so do keep feeding them during the warmer months. 

Don't be too heavy-handed with watering as these beauties prefer to be on the drier side of things.


  • Live plant in soil
  • The length of the strands varies but is at least 5 cm
  • The pot diameter is 6 cm
