String of Turtles (Peperomia prostrata) is a tiny succulent for the known for its gorgeous turtle print leaves.
Light: bright, indirect light is best. Avoid direct sunlight for many hours.
Water: more inclined to suffer from over-watering, your plant prefers slightly moist conditions. Ensure that you keep the soil moist during the growing season and the “soak and dry” succulent method during the winter months.
Fertilizer: this will help maintain the String of Turtles colour and patterns throughout the growing season. Use a diluted 20-20-20 houseplant fertilizer bi-weekly during the growing season, avoid during the fall and winter.
Maintenance: Regular pruning and deadheading will help keep your plant’s attractive, manicured appearance. Use scissors or snips for the best results. Growth is fairly slow, encourage a bushier plant by taking a string and place it on top of the soil, ensuring the nodes are in contact with soil as they will eventually grow roots, and then new vines.
Growth: Up to 12" trailing
