String of Turtles (Peperomia Prostrata) is a small-leaved succulent native to Brazilian rainforests that thrives in warm climates but adapts well to average household conditions. Because of this, it's a very popular plant for houseplant collections and apartment jungles worldwide.

This plant features small, circular leaves with beautiful markings that resemble those of a turtle shell, hence its name. This plant is sure to give a unique feel to any home. 

How to root your String of Turtles

Root your String of Turtles cuttings by placing them on top of well-draining potting mix (we like fine succulent mix with added pumice or perlite) or sphagnum moss or fern fibre - the nodes will grow roots and eventually new growth will form. You can gently pin your cuttings down with our handy Plant Soil Pins so the nodes stay in touch with the soil to start rooting. Keep the cutting warm (ideally between 18-25 degrees) and the substrate nice & moist (but not overly) to encourage healthy growth. While your cutting is rooting and establishing, provide it with as much humidity as you can to speed up this process.

String of Turtles Plant care

Besides water and bright indirect light, this plant doesn’t need much maintenance once established. It’s good to have for people who are busy and can’t water their plants every day.

This plant prefers bright light but does not do well in direct sunlight. It will love you for any extra humidity you can provide it with.

Best suited to indoor conditions of around 18-25 degrees. This plant only requires a light fertiliser through the summer months.
