String of Turtles

Peperomia prostrata

One of the cutest creeping plants on the market in my humble opinion! A super fast grower however, with these babies humidity is a must! With their iconic leaves that look like turtle shells, I mean how can you not!

Please note - Peperomia prostrata have very shallow roots, I recommend leaving them in their pots for quite sometime.

Pot Diameter: 5.5cm

Light: Peperomia grow best in bright, indirect light. Please ensure it is not placed in direct sunlight as this can burn the leaves and/or fade the bright colours of the foliage. They will grow in medium to low light however it will not thrive.

Watering: Most Peperomia like humid conditions. This can easily be achieved by placing the plant under a glass dome ect. Allow the plant to dry out between waterings (ideally allow at least the top inch of soil to dry out before watering). Water thoroughly, allow the water to drain completely and never leave the plant to stand in water.

Growth: Peperomia can reach up to 30cm in width and height.

Other: Please keep me away from hot or cold drafts.
