The Peperomia Prostrata, or more commonly known as the String of Turtles is a small training plant that has circular, succulent leaves that look like turtle shells.

It is a great hanging plant that looks beautiful trailing down a shelf! The String of Turtles does produce flowers, but they are not as showy as you might think. They send out multiple spikes of white flowers but most people remove them, and this won’t hurt the plant.

They can grow up to 12 inches in length, and are very slow growing.They like to be placed in bright, indirect light. An eastern window will provide morning light that won’t be harsh on the plants leaves.

Water when the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry. Be careful not to overwater this guy. They like to be planted in well draining soil.

It’s also non toxic to cats and dogs!
