String of Turtles
String of Turtles, aka Peperomia prostrata, is a slow-growing succulent. Its tiny, beautiful, shell-like leaves are fleshy and succulent to the touch, emerging along creeping, pinkish vines. They look like tiny turtle shells, hence its common name. Native to the rainforests of Brazil, it roots readily and is easy to propagate, though it is exceedingly difficult to find – a must-have for every plant parents collection.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
