This tiny little Brazilian native succulent that thrives in a climate that mimics those found in the average house. It is small in size and has a slow growth rate, reaching full maturity in three to five years. 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. The colors become muted with age and eventually become bicolored by maturity, usually a darker green contrasted by light green.

  • Botanical Name: Peperomia Prostrata
  • Common Name(s): String of Turtles

Here’s a summary of its key features and care requirements:

  1. Appearance: Peperomia prostrata features small, round leaves that are green with silver-green veins, resembling tiny turtle shells. The leaves grow densely along trailing stems, creating a cascading effect.
  2. Light: Place Peperomia prostrata in bright, indirect light. It thrives in filtered sunlight or partial shade. Direct sunlight can scorch the delicate leaves, so protect the plant from intense afternoon sun.
  3. Temperature: This plant prefers average to warm temperatures ranging from 65-75°F (18-24°C). Avoid exposing it to cold drafts or temperatures below 50°F (10°C), as it is sensitive to frost.
  4. Watering: Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings, then water thoroughly. Peperomia prostrata prefers slightly moist soil but is susceptible to root rot if overwatered. Ensure that the pot has proper drainage to prevent waterlogging.
  5. Humidity: Maintain moderate to high humidity levels around the plant, especially if you’re growing it indoors. You can increase humidity by misting the plant regularly, placing a humidity tray filled with water and pebbles beneath the pot, or using a room humidifier.
  6. Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix tailored for succulents or cacti. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and coarse sand works well. Avoid heavy or compacted soils that retain excess moisture.
  7. Fertilization: Feed the plant with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce fertilization or stop altogether during the fall and winter months when growth slows down.
  8. Propagation: Peperomia prostrata can be propagated easily from stem cuttings. Simply snip a healthy stem with a few leaves attached, allow the cut end to callus for a day or two, then plant it in moist potting soil or water until roots develop.
  9. Pests and Diseases: Monitor the plant regularly for signs of pests such as spider mites, mealybugs, or aphids. Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Peperomia prostrata is relatively resistant to diseases but can develop fungal issues if overwatered or exposed to excessive humidity.
  10. Pruning: Trim back leggy or overgrown stems to encourage bushier growth and maintain the plant’s compact shape. Regular pruning also helps rejuvenate the plant and remove any dead or damaged foliage.

With proper care, Peperomia prostrata String of Turtles will reward you with its charming appearance and easy-going nature, making it an excellent choice for hanging baskets, shelves, or as a trailing accent in mixed planters.
