String of Turtles (Peperomia Prostrata)
Peperomia Prostrata is an interesting plant from Brazil. That same leaf shape is what gives the plant its common name. Each one looks like the shell of a miniature turtle strung together. Every tiny leaf on its trailing vine has intricate multi-colored patterns covering its surface.
Size: 5-6 inches across as in the picture with multiple plants.
Pot Size: Grown in 4 inches nursery pot
The above specifications are indicative only. The actual size and color of the plant may vary.
In terms of watering keep in mind that these are succulents so "overwatering " can easily turn you into a plant killer. So, check the soil before watering them, if it's soggy then avoid watering and instead place it in such a place where the soil can get dried cause that's when they thrive best.
Any well draining succulent soil mix is good for these.
String of turtles plants loves bright indirect sunlight and will thrive in these conditions. Keeping these plants in full sun for too long will damage the leaves.
Initial Care (After receiving the plant)
- Leave the plant in its nursery pot. Do not think of watering it now, if the medium looks super dry then add some water.

Received this string of turtles very healthy although it took some days to reach probably the pandemic caused delay. It’s bit expensive but since it was my wish list I went fit it. Packing was done good.
