String of Turtles | Peperomia Prostrata

I am a miniature member of the Peperomia family with delicate leaves that resemble the shell of a turtle, hence my common name. My delicately patterned leaves will keep you staring for ages!

Useful to know:

Origin

I am native to the rainforests of Brazil.

Height/Growth

I could cascade for about 50cm if treated well.

Light

I like bright, indirect light.

Water

Keep me moist but not wet - a drink once a week will probably do for me.

Temperature

I like normal room temperatures of between 16-23°C.

Feeding

Feed me with diluted liquid fertiliser every 2-3 weeks during spring.

Grooming

I love bright light but not direct sunlight - it scorches my leaves.

Care

If you notice my leaves wilting, you're overwatering me. Let me soil dry out a little before giving me more water.

Toxicity

Good news: I am pet-safe!

Fact

I can take a little while to adjust to my new home, so once you bring me in, please don't move me around to much - I like to stay in one place and make myself comfy. Click here to buy a similar plant String of Pearls.
